Pilgrims with Disabilities to Have Special Attention at WYD

Pilgrims with physical, hearing, visual and intellectual disabilities will have all the support and assistance necessary to participate in the catechesis activities and Main Events, from those in Copacabana all the way to those of the Campus Fidei, without losing any of the emotion of World Youth Day (WYD) Rio 2013. One-hundred twenty national and international volunteers will be trained and will assist with those individuals.

In agreement with volunteer César Bacchin, responsible for participants with disabilities, all of those handicapped who seek special accommodations upon registration will stay in a reserved area in Adaraí, in Rio’s North Zone. Visit this article to read more.
