Interesting program on BBC news channel – about the growing crisis of homelessness in Hawaii. 

Poverty of thousands in islands of such beauty is probably the last thing you’d imagine. 

They estimate there’s about 7-8,000 who are homeless. 

The cost of living is so high out there and rents are becoming harder to meet. 

Also the average life expectancy of a homeless person in Chinatown, Honolulu is just 51. 

It’s apparently breaking the law to live on the streets. Residents call the police at the sight of a tent, let alone more. 

It’s not just single people in these positions but families. 

It’s quite eye opening.
