Vice President of Ecuador, Lenin Moreno, has traveled around the world since 2007 to April this year in 37 trips to attend summits and receive medals and titles for his management for people with disabilities.
The Manuela Espejo Project has helped thousands of handicaped people and has been featured in all the countries of South America, parts of Central America, Spain and Italy.
Moreno was accompanied by his wife, Rocio Gonzalez, and sometimes by his daughter Carina. Moreno tells that the company of his wife comes from the necessity of having someone you trust to assist you.
In the 37 journeys, the state has spent 3.9 million dollars in travel and subsistence, according to figures reported by the Vice Presidency on its website.
Moreno and his wife have traveled around 40 countries to disseminate the achievements of his program with a great reception. The first trip was made on an official mission to the U.S. in March 2007.
The next administration on the agenda of the Vice President are the Special Olympics at London in September. (MZ)
