Acting in rural areas

Today, June 22 2015, we learned the death of a nice man, a friend always smiling and fighting; smiling to those he meets and fighting discriminations of those who share his life condition with a disability. Like those of his peers in DPI and in the disability movement in Argentina, DPI Europe members feel deeply sad and express their profound empathy to his relatives and friends all over the world.

You were one of these rare persons who demonstrate how human being condition is sometime transcendental and how important are our contributions, we citizens with disabilities, to the world’s progress and to the human development.

Thank you Enrique, we will share what you have taught.

Stay in peace.
