Australian Family Lives in Slum Dog's Neighbourhood

There is an interesting article in the Sydney Morning Herald about an Australian family who chose to live in the Mumbai slums in order to escape the consumerism of western society. Read about it here. What caught my eye was the quote: "They are strongly motivated by their Christian faith, believing that life is more about caring for others than comfort and success." I wonder if this was similar to life of Christians living in the insulae in quarters of ancient Rome, Corinth, or Thessaloniki.
