Kitchen In Toilet, Shocking Photos Of 'Coffin Homes' In Hong Kong. by Explorers(m): 4:51pm On Jul 27
They've been condemned by the UN as 'an insult to human dignity', but so-called 'coffin homes' still house around 200,000 people in jam-packed.

According to the Census and Statistics Department, those people are being housed in around 88,000 subdivided apartments.

These shocking pictures, which form part of a new exhibition by the Society for Community Organisation, reveal desperately cramped living spaces where toilets are feet away from chopping boards and rooms are the width of a single-bed mattress.

Because of long waits for public housing and sky-rocketing rent costs, many poor people in Hong Kong are forced to simply accept their tiny living spaces.


One occupant said 'The most difficult thing about living here is not being able to breathe in fresh air.

It’s suffocating.'

Ajegunle looks better than this. My impression of Hongkong has always been sprawling skyscrapers with beautiful landscapes. I know it took explorer great effort to dig this out. While advance countries hide their dirty linen from external eyes,country like Nigeria will do otherwise. We emphasize more on our negatives than our positives. No wonder they rate Nigeria very unsafe while a city like chicago where the rate of crime for one month is higher than that of the whole Nigeria,is declared safe. No country is perfect.

There is suffering all over the world, wealth is not evenly distributed. The rich keep getting richer while the poor poorer, according to Pareto Analysis, 80% of the world's wealth is in the hand of only 20%. The same Hong Kong where these people suffer is the same Hong Kong that has hundreds of Chinese multimillionaires. Even here in Nigeria, people live in worse slums. Some slums don't even have access to clean water, no electricity, the environment is so dirty that the inhabitants are susceptible to the worst kind of diseases the world has ever heard. At least their Chinese counterparts can boast of constant power supply. angry

Men this one is bumper to bumper. Real coffin.

See that dude in the Styrofoam like crib. I would just die. Claustrophobia is my main phobia.

I even get sick seeing people stuck in tight places on tv.

yes but how we treat and present both sides differs. We tend to present our slums more than our cities and that is the impression foreigners have about us
