Ivory Coast model dies because of priority of money over healthcare

This video, in French from Ivory Coast, is about the burial of model Awa Fadiga.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain today:

IVORY COAST: Locally celebrated model Awa Fadiga died in hospital on Friday because no-one was there to pay her medical fees, her family has said.

She was attacked on Wednesday night and thrown out of a cab beneath a bridge.

More than 8,000 Ivorians signed an online petition criticising the hospital’s behaviour and 21,000 have joined a Facebook group denouncing “the priority of money over basic healthcare.”
