Slums Cushion Collection

Slums in London, England have been an issue for many years, and are areas of extreme poverty and overcrowding, with inadequate housing and sanitation. The slums often lack basic amenities such as running water, electricity or gas. People living in these areas are often exposed to health risks due to poor living conditions. Slum dwellers also face discrimination from the wider society due to their socio-economic status. In recent years there has been some progress in improving the lives of slum dwellers through government initiatives such as providing better housing and sanitation facilities, as well as education and employment opportunities. However there is still much work to be done if we want to eradicate the problem in London, England completely.
