Respect for Hong Kong-based Society for Community Organisation (SoCO), and how they’re always able to raise awareness around the living conditions of our cities poorest. These mini-cage homes made by Kwing Kit and Benny Lam, were found in Central recently, by scanning the QR-code you could sign the petition against these horrible small ‘houses’ that cage the poor, often no bigger than 40 square feet. I wrote about cage-homes earlier this year here.
Hong Kong is a wealthy place, yet the city lacks a proper social safety net and remains home to the widest rich-poor gap in the developed world – and it is getting worse. Not something to be proud of and absolutely a thing to literally pause on for a while.
