Cuba-Social Exclusion

Dr Darsi Ferrer, shown in this video, visits on his own and without any help from the Cuban authorities, communities that live in cardboard boxes and makeshift houses. They are known as concentration camps. They live in deplorable conditions, without clean water, because it is not treated for human consumption. This causes them to contract serious infections, with no end site. Clean water is the most important thing we humans need to survive.

Since this video Dr. Darsi has been arrested for his outspoken criticism of the state of medicine in his country and the treatment of people in communities like this one that live beyond the margin of society.
