Cote d'Ivoire: Three Ivorian Singing Stars Team Up to Stop Violence Against Health Care

press release

'Ivoire: Three Ivorian Singers — Côte dKajeem, Onakamy and Mawa Traoré - supported by the ICRC, have launched a video clip for the song "C'est une question de vie et de mort." The video is part of the Health Care in Danger campaign, and is a call for action to all those who can facilitate - or prevent - the vital work of first aiders and medical personnel in situations of violence and other emergencies.

"In West Africa there is nothing like music to get an important message across such as the necessity of letting ambulances pass through a rebellious crowd," explains Layal Horanieh, who is in charge of the musical project for the ICRC. What's more, everyone can support this initiative, for instance, just by sharing the video across their social media networks."
