Why does Hong Kong's housing crisis matter so much to our journalists? Fiona Sun, Emily Tsang and Zuraidah Ibrahim from SCMP's Hong Kong desk dive into one of the city's thorniest issues and use their voices to effect change.
Life in Hong Kong’s worst living spaces: from cage homes to subdivided flats - More than 220,000 people live in Hong Kong’s notorious subdivided flats, facing grim conditions as well as fire and security hazards because they can afford nothing better.

In a three-part series, the Post looks at the realities of life in such dwellings, speaks to the people forced to live in them, and more.
Unpacking all parts of a story and rigorous fact-checking requires the highest levels of editorial integrity. That’s why in March 2020, the Post was proud to be the first Asian news organisation to join the Trust Project, a global network of leading media organisations committed to high levels of transparency and credible reporting.
