Alone in the City

According to a 2010 survey conducted by civic groups and the Korean Center for City and Environment Research, an estimated 1500 South Koreans are homeless.  The majority of them live in Seoul. 

Some gather in communities of 20-30.

Some brave their days in groups of 10 or less.

Some go it alone.



You can help.
