08/08/15: Humanitarians meet in Quarteira

Rosa Carvalho, Zé do Pedal and José Lima

Pedal Joe (Zé do Pedal) met today the wheel chair travellers José Lima and Rosa Carvalho in Quarteira, Algarve, Portugal

It was a meeting between Men who fight for humanitarian causes. Pedal Joe is part of the programme of the Lions International Vision for All. José Lima and Rosa Carvalho just crossed Portugal for the second time (870 km), from north to south, on wheel chairs, in 15 days. They are fighting for the undoing of the tabus affecting people with disabilities and the recognition of their equal status as citizens, and preparing for the London Para-Olympic Games.
