CERTIFICATE
Educational: Personal Growth & Development, How-to, Instructional

Entrant: Radio Television Hong Kong/HKSAR


In the first half of 2010, the poor population in Hong Kong reached 1.26 million. The economic gap is widening and society is saturated with an emotion of ‘hating businessmen’ and ‘hating the rich’. 1.26 million people are living under the poverty line. The number of poor people who are employed reached 650,000. About 300,000 children live in poverty. One in every 3 elderly people is considered poor.
"Rich Mate, Poor Mate II"tries to investigate how we can distribute resources and formulate policies to improve this dreadful situation. We have invited six wealthy people, who are either prominent tycoons active in the business and political circles, or offspring of famous magnates, to live in cage houses, work low pay and long-hour jobs, sleep on the street in winter, experience cross-generation poverty and see for themselves the predicament of being old and poor or being young but lacking the means to go upwards.

Will there be an answer to dubious vaccines- Mainland Chinese reporter Wang Keqin discovered that many children in Shanxi province have died or become handicapped soon after vaccination. An official from Shanxi Disease Control Centre, Chen Taoan even revealed that since 2006, there have been vaccines which were exposed to high temperatures. The government, however, said that the problem of the children had no relationship with the vaccines. Even when reporters and parents had evidence, the courts refused to take up the cases. This incident is only the tip of an iceberg. Child victims of contaminated vaccines have since been found all over China. From the spread of AIDS,melamine milk power to killer vaccines, more and more people are victimised, and more and more victims are pressured to shut up. The children are innocent. Who actually incites disorder, unscrupulous businessmen and officials, or the country which allows all this to happen?
