Hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong residents live in these so-called “coffin” homes. They even manage to start families there!

They can't complain, human touch gets through to them.

Tess, that's the whole they have. Every picture is one house/living space. It's that small

You have also living cages

Is breeding a human right? Or a responsibility?

I have seen this in most countries across the world, this is just Hong Kong, but all the major cities in the world have their "coffin home" dwellers. I have often spoken to them and listened to their stories. Most are good humans down on their luck or in a particular circumstance.

The one that hit me the hardest was in Manila, there was a family of 16 living next to a posh hotel, kids, parents and grandparents. At night they would look into the dining room of the hotel and see how people ate the best delicacies money could buy while they were starving on the street.

I spoke to the mother, she was young and pregnant with her third child, I guess she must have been around 22 to 25, she had lived on the streets of Manila for 10 years. On the last day in Manila, before I departed I visited her again, the previous night the grandpa passed away. I gave her all the money I had on me. I often think about them living on the street.

In the end it is humans with lives, feelings and stories. Just like the rest of us they also have dreams and hopes.

Welfare recipients in the U.S. wouldn't lower themselves to live in places like this. Goes to show the difference between "me so poor" in the U.S. and people who are truly poor elsewhere.

Robin,

poor people in the USA are getting GOVT housing and welfare hand outs. they are poor because the prefer to get GOVT assistance and not work. Opportunity is there, but they choose not to pursue it.
