Up to 50 people living in a house in Iraq – no joke

The video above is a satirical piece by a comedian in Sadr City, Baghdad which does exaggerate things a bit, but is not that far off from the truth. I know because I have seen it, several families crowded into one small house, often sleeping in one large room. So this is my attempt at using comedy to highlight a serious issues; we need more affordable accommodation and government housing units, we can’t keep up with population increase using 1950s housing and have people still living in mud brick houses.
