【明報專訊】A movie released on September 17 in Hong Kong is called "I'm livin' it" (麥 路人). It's about people living at McDonald's. A trailer can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlh16FWBh7U&feature=youtu.be
Two NGOs, ImpactHK and Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), noticed a sharp increase in the number of street sleepers in Tsim Sha Tsui in July. The same situation exists in other parts of Hong Kong.
An NGO to which I belong, MercyHK, is also trying to help. At the Alhambra Building in Yau Ma Tei, we are currently renting 24 rooms for 38 homeless people.
Video interviews with some of the 38 have been put on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcILmpsEuT2YvyUU_orf64Q/
I invite officials who are preparing the CE's Policy Address for next month to watch these videos, in the hope that homelessness will be on the menu of the Address.
