Top 10 Most Dangerous Worst Slums in the World

The word ‘slum’ is a very unpleasant one to hear about. It brings up images of people living in poor conditions, with no access to necessities such as water, sanitation or proper housing. However, the word ‘slum’ has come to be used for areas that are not necessarily bad, but rather have a lower standard of living than other parts of the city or country. These areas can be found in almost every part of the world, and they are known as dangerous slums because they lack basic infrastructure such as clean water and toilets for residents to use.

Top 10 Most Worst and Biggest Slums List

01.    Orangi Town (Pakistan / 2.4 million)

A large portion of Karachi, Pakistan's northwest is made up of the municipality of Orangi, which is about 57 square kilometers (22 sq mi) in size. Orangi-Baldia is considered to have a population of over two million when combined with the neighboring municipality of Baldia Town. With a population of 2.4 million, Orangi is both Asia's and the world's largest slum, more than twice as large as Dharavi, Mumbai, India, or Ciudad Neza, Mexico City, both of which have populations of 1.2 million. The majority of Orangi does receive municipal services, despite being the largest of Karachi's largely unplanned settlements.

02.    Ciudad Neza (Mexico / 1.3 million)

Today, Ciudad Neza is a sprawling city with a population of over a million and is entirely made up of modern structures. Along with Chalco and Ixta, Nezahualcóyotl as of 2006 also contains a portion of the largest shanty town in the world. Having migrated from other regions of Mexico, the majority of its residents are poor.

03.    Dharavi (India / 1 million)

The largest slum in the world, Dharavi is a suburb of Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. There are about 1,000,000 people living in Dharavi, which has a population of just over 2 point 1 square kilometers (0 point 81 square miles; 520 acres). One of the world's most densely populated areas is Dharavi, which has a population density of over 277,136/km2 (717,780/sq mi). The Dharavi slum was established in 1884 during the British colonial era and grew as a result of the colonial government's eviction of factories and residents from the peninsular city center as well as the influx of rural Indians into urban Mumbai. Because of this, Dharavi is currently a very diverse settlement in terms of both religion and ethnicity.

04.    Kibera (Kenya / 500,000)

6 points 6 kilometers (4 points 1 mi) from the city center, in Nairobi Area, Kenya, is the neighborhood of Kibera. The biggest urban slum in Africa and in Nairobi is called Kibera. In contrast to earlier estimates of one or two million people, the 2009 Kenya Population and Housing Census indicates that Kibera has a population of 170,070. Depending on which slums are included in the definition of Kibera, other sources claim the total population may range from 500,000 to well over 1,000,000.

05.    Rocinha (Brazil / 200,000)

The largest favela in Brazil, Rocinha, is situated between the So Conrado and Gávea districts in the South Zone of Rio de Janeiro. About a mile from a beach, Rocinha is situated on a rocky hillside with views of Rio de Janeiro. The vast majority of the favela is surrounded by trees and is situated on a very steep hill. The most populous favela in Brazil is Rocinha, which is home to about 200,000 people.

06.    Mathare (Kenya / 180,000)

There are roughly 500,000 people living in the collection of slums known as Mathare in Nairobi; 180,000 of these people live in Mathare Valley, the area's oldest slum. Mathare is the home of the MYSA football teams Mathare United and Real Mathare.  Mathare is currently split between the Mathare Constituency, which is named after it, and the Ruaraka Constituency, which includes the northern portion. Up until the 2013 elections, when Kasarani was divided into three electoral constituencies, one of which was Ruaraka, the northern portion had originally been a part of that constituency. In Starehe Constituency, the southern portion belonged.

07.    Kawangware (Kenya / 140,000)

Kawangware had 133,286 residents as of this time, based on the 2009 Kenya Population and Housing Census. The population's share of children and youths is thought to be 65 percent. The majority of residents earn less than $2 (although they are paid in shillings) per day, there is a high rate of unemployment, and many are independent traders. Many different ethnic groups are represented. In the Kawangware slum, there are more posho mills than bars, making it an "ugali nation" for its over 130,000 mouths, whose palates, unlike those of other Nairobians, have no time for supermarket unga, the grade-one sifted maize meal favored by middle-class stomachs.

08.    Khayelitsha (South Africa / 120,000)

When compared to the city median of R40,000 (US$3,743), Khayelitsha has one of the lowest median annual family incomes in Cape Town at R20,000 (US$1,872). The 118,000 households have an informal housing component that makes up about half of them. Area: 1680 square miles or 43 pt. 51 sq. km.

09.    Kangemi (Kenya / 100,000)

As with many other slums in Nairobi, Kenya's Kangemi is situated outside the city. The middle-class communities of Loresho and Kibagare, as well as Westlands, encircle it on the north and west, respectively. Its eastern border joins Mountain View, a neighborhood of middle class residents, and its southern border joins Kawangware, another sizable slum. On the road that runs between Nairobi and Naivasha, it is located. More than 100,000 people live in Kangemi, most likely. The Luhya tribe makes up the majority of the inhabitants, despite the slum being multi-ethnic.

10.    Makoko (Nigeria / 85,000)

As a result of its waterways, Makoko is occasionally referred to as "Venice of Africa.". Although the area was not formally included in the 2007 census, its population has been estimated to be much higher than the official figure of 85,840. The Lagos State government issued an order in July 2012 to remove some of the stilts that were located beyond the power lines without giving proper notice. Numerous stilts on the Iwaya/Makoko waterfront were destroyed as a result, leaving many families without a place to live.
