Hong Kong is a place where the gap between rich and poor is growing.
Home to some of Asia's richest, Hong Kong simultaneously finds a fifth of its population living in poverty.
While Hong Kong may be renowned for its wealth and expensive real estate, it also hosts one of the largest public housing sectors in the world. Approximately half the population live in government-supported or subsidized housing. Almost 20% of Hong Kong's population live below the poverty line. This leaves families and young people with very few opportunities.
