On Friday, a few classes, including mine went to Asbury for a field trip. Asbury is an organisation that helps people that are living in subdivided homes in Hong Kong. When we got there, a man talked about subdivided homes, He new a lot about it because he was actually living in a industrial building. He said, there were no toilets and a space to cook his meals, so he ate outside and walked to public toilets. After that, we were in groups and had a instructor each to guide us where to go, to buy toilet paper and food and lead us to the apartments where the poor families lived. When we got to their home, we gave the mother all the stuff from the market. She was very thankful, we saw one of her children, he was a five year old boy that was playing a game on her phone. She had 3 more children who were at school, the home was very small.
