Francis From BBC Documentary ‘The World’s Worst Place To Be Disabled’ Has Died Aged 30 #ForFrancis

August 17, 2015

I share this message from Sophie Morgan in tribute to him, as she has requested people may like to do.

It is with enormous sadness that I write to tell you all that Francis – the young man in our BBC Documentary – has died.

Francis has been confined to his room for 15 years after becoming disabled, and now after years of neglect his suffering is over.

I met him in Ghana as part of a documentary which explored where in the world it might be worse to be disabled, and his face and story will haunt me forever.

He is buried today aged only 30.
R. I. P Francis 1985-2015
