Javier Pitillas, Discamino

One of the main organizationsf contemplated in our CSR is Discamino, an organization that helps people with disabilities to complete the Camino de Santiago. Its founder, the award-winning and tireless Javier Pitillas, gave a lecture at the Health Fair, on the Camino being a challenge of overcoming the environment, where people with disabilities share their experiences.

"Let no one tell you that you cannot". With this statement Javier Pitillas, promoter and head of the association DisCamino, sums up in the most accurate way possible, his organization's motivation, having already made 93 trips to Santiago de Compostela, by which the dreams of almost half a thousand people with disabilities came true; they learned that such a challenge was within their reach despite all the difficulties.

His testimony on the second day of the Health Fair, organized by Asomega at the Casa de Galicia in Madrid, moved everyone, for its simplicity, the clarity of his message ("The Way is a way to enjoy while helping others enjoy, to accompany others in their happines", he said), and the honesty he conveys.

His speech was structured around three videos in which he explained the evolution of DisCamino: the first one is about the origin of the initiative, the second shows realization, with the first route, and the third, its development in recent years.
