Hong Kong The Rich and The Caged
In this Jan. 25, 2013 photo, 63-year-old Lee Tat-fong, walks in a corridor while her two grandchildren Amy, 9, and Steven, 13 sit in their 50-square-foot room in Hong Kong. Lee, like many poor residents, has applied for public housing but faces years of waiting. Nearly three-quarters of 500 low-income families questioned by Oxfam Hong Kong in a recent survey had been on the list for more than 4 years without being offered a flat. (AP Photo/Vincent Yu)
