Joe's contact in the Togolese Republic:
Currently Pedal Joe is in TOGO (since the 3rd of July). He is in much better health, and goes on taking the tablets prescribed for the prevention of malaria. He is still a little tired, not being able to pedal more than a few hours per day. But his forces are coming back…
Zé thanks all those who have prayed for him in this very difficult hour…. he is especially grateful to the CL Past President, Kwame Opoku, without whom, with his decisive and important support, Zé would not be here to tell the tale.
And to all those who have expressed their solidarity during this very difficult moment for him: "To all of you, angels in my path, a heart felt kiss from this Africa which at once fascinates and scares."
Pedal Joe thanks BERG Toys, University Photo and Buynet for their support.

"In the last 70 years, the World's population has tripled. The demand for water increased six fold. If the present patterns are not modified, in 2025 four billion people will not have access to water."
"Water: a drop, a life... preserve them. For me... for yourself... for our Planet..." Pedal Joe (Zé do Pedal)
