When social issues become the subject of the show

Recently, the TVB information program "Waiting Around" pointed out that a deaf-mute woman was inherited from her father's estate by the female security guard of the housing estate, and then was occupied and changed locks, and she had to fall into the street. After the program was broadcast, it attracted widespread attention.



Recently, the TVB information program "Waiting Around" pointed out that a deaf-mute woman was inherited from her father's estate by the female security guard of the housing estate, and then was occupied and changed locks, and she had to fall into the street. After the program was broadcast, it attracted widespread attention.

The last episode of this topic was broadcast on Thursday (25th). In the trailer, it can be seen that the attitude of female security guards has changed drastically, even kneeling down to confess mistakes to the deaf and dumb victims. The dramatic development aroused public curiosity about the outcome.


Many voices on the Internet point to the quality of the program groups, which they believe can help disadvantaged citizens get justice.

However, many of the cases involved in the program have one thing in common, that is, they directly or indirectly involve the work of different government departments.

When citizens seek help outside of the public power and resort to the mass media, we can also reflect on whether the existing mechanism fails to effectively deal with the problem.

Invisible cases exist in the community

The show uses social issues as the subject of filming from time to time. For example, in the "Tai Kok Tsui Granny's Cockroach House" incident at the beginning of the year, a large number of cockroaches and mice breed due to the poor hygiene in the old women's house, and pests spread to nearby units.

Although staff of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department visited the scene in the program, the two sides only talked separately and did not see any real results.

A follow-up report was broadcast in October. Because the old woman refused to move out even after the end of the lease for more than a year, the sanitation situation did not improve at all, and the owner had to seek the help of the bailiff to resolve the incident. The enforcement of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department still needs to be strengthened.

Another case involving pest nuisance to neighbors is the "Ma On Shan Cockroach House for the Elderly Living Alone".

The person involved is a chronically ill patient who is ill after amputation. He has to use an external toilet bag in his daily life and it is difficult to clean the house by himself.

As a result, the sanitation of the home environment is deteriorating, even affecting the surrounding residents.

Even if the victim had to face a large number of problems, the Housing Department did not provide sufficient assistance in the incident, and the Social Welfare Department did not have social workers to follow up the incident. Moreover, the victim did not have a suitable toilet bag to use. Obviously, he needed the assistance of outreach medical staff.

All the above problems were finally solved by an information program to contact different units, including pest control experts, social workers, nurses, and volunteers.

Even though various departments can attribute the blame to the fact that the victim did not actively apply for assistance, for some special situations, the department may need more flexibility in handling matters so that cases hidden in the community can be appropriately helped.

When the media has more social issues that can be used as themes, it may mean that the issues are flooding the society.

If the relevant mechanism fails to deal with the problem, or the relevant departments are not sufficiently vigilant, although the media can sometimes help expose the case to the spotlight, the effect is only limited for a while.

The support provided by government departments is indispensable for helping citizens to solve their problems with perseverance.

If government departments can adequately solve the problems of the citizens of one party, they will not become an afterthought for the general public.

The society in the KOL era should reflect on the responsibility of the Peach Park, costing 4.5 million yuan to become a community gathering spot?
