Housing Inequality

Screen Shot 2014-12-02 at 2.07.03 pmDear Diary,
My name is Chan Sui Hing. I have a her sick husband and two teenage sons. We lives in a shanty on the same rooftop. During the rainy season, the rain falls from the house from the holes on the ceiling. We came to Hong Kong from Guangdong, mainland China, in 2005 because the medical fee in Hong Kong aren’t as expensive as the one in mainland. I support my family with my job on a construction site. I need to pay around HK$2,000 (US$250) a month for rent. I can’t afford to live in an department,I really hope that the government can do something to improve the housing in Hong Kong.
