EVO 153 是一個由四人組成的自發義工團隊，我們即將會舉辦一個活動叫做《遊走大西北》。我們四人以及幾個自薦的朋友會分段走畢全程28公里。地圖說需時大約七小時但是經過小休，走錯路，以及行到一半開始慢的情況底下，我們預計大約13小時內完成全程 😂。
Over 200,000 people including 40,000+ children are living in the so called ‘sub-divided rooms’ of Hong Kong. These rooms have been described with many names: coffin cubicles, caged homes, but none of the names paint a pretty picture. I boarded in one such room when I used to work at a famous fine dining venue. I earned a reasonable income, considering it was unskilled labour. But despite the terrible conditions board still cost half my monthly pay. 15 years on and I am lucky enough to have improved my living situation, but many still call these horrible rooms ‘home’.
These inhumane dwelling situations strips away a person’s basic dignity and takes away the health in anyone’s mind. Pictured below is a family of 8 including kids and elderly, staying in a room that can easily be smaller than your bathroom. Many of the young girls or even teenagers who live in those housing will be sharing shower and toilet with other people in flat (I mean many more people than the family members, several families using the same bathroom). That’s not private, and not necessary safe. At the time of the pandemic, those who live in such densely dwelling are the most vulnerable and with no other options than being at risk.

I’m organizing a ‘NorthWest Walk’ event, walking from Kwai Chung to Tin Shui Wai, Hong Kong. Total length 28km (17.5miles). The map shows it’s around 7 hrs, not including breaks, or wrong turns, I would expect 10-12 hrs in total being realistic. I will be joined by various ladies from my team during some parts of the walk.
This event aims to raise awareness for the residential cubicles and cage rooms in the NorthWest districts. We have invited the Next Step Global Charity Foundation (nsg.fund – I know… it’s only in Chinese at the moment) to work with us and deliver the resources to the people in need.
I am urging everyone I know to share what is the cost of 2 drinks or a meal out with friends 💞, it's the little things we do that will make a big difference!
Route: Kwai Chung -> Tuen Mun -> Hau Shui Kiu -> Tin Shui Wai

Sad day for the girl!Update posted by Shun Wong at 03:54 pm
I am terribly sorry to tell you all this. So I've been doing some light training recently and tried to step up a little for the event. I’ve ended up hurting myself. I thought it wouldn't have any effect on the event at first but unfortunately, this isn't the case.. . . . .
