Hong Kong is known for its luxurious life and lifestyle. The tourism sector of the country is very strong and the economy is growing rapidly. In such a situation, Hong Kong seems to be a rich country and a country with amenities, but there is also a section of this country which is forced to live in poverty away from the glare. You will be shocked to see how the poor people of the country live their lives.
The house of the poor in Hong Kong is like a coffin in which they live like an object instead of a human. The revelations made in the media reports about the living conditions and houses of these people are in stark contrast to the lives of people living in high-rise buildings. Hong Kong’s expensive lifestyle is believed to be responsible behind this poverty, which not all citizens are able to afford.
Two lakh people forced to live in coffin homes
Hong Kong is one of the most expensive countries in the world. All facilities are available in this country but for that you have to loose your pocket. Especially the price of property is very high in this country, due to which it is not easy for everyone to buy a house here. According to the report, these small houses of the poor are called ‘coffin homes’.
According to government data, the number of people living in coffin homes is very high. About 2,00,000 people live in these houses while the population of the country is 75 lakhs. Far from buying your own house in Hong Kong, renting a house here is also very expensive. The poor of the country cannot survive on the roads because the administration does not allow them, due to which these people are forced to live in coffin homes.
people fall prey to diseases
Hong Kong attempts to hide a large number of coffin homes from the world because they are believed to damage Hong Kong’s global image. Although the world knows very well the truth of these coffin homes. This house has both kitchen and washroom as much as 6 feet rooms. Apart from this, people have to keep all the necessities including bedding and kitchen items in this house.
People sleeping in it are neither able to change sides nor are they able to spread their legs. These houses are built for the purpose of living for only one person. People are forced to live in these houses only because they have a roof over their heads. Due to having both kitchen and bathroom in a small house, people are victims of disease. Despite all this, people have to pay 250 US dollars as rent to live in these houses.
