Associação Salvador

Associação Salvador is a nonprofit organization founded in 2003 by Salvador Mendes de Almeida. Salvador is quadriplegic since 1998, due to a motorcycle accident.

Our mission is to promote the integration of physically disabled people in society and to improve their quality of life, developing projects in the following areas: Knowledge, Social Integration and Awareness.

Every year, we directly support over 300 persons with physical disabilities from all over Portugal, through:

  • Direct aid (services and equipment);
  • Integration in the labour market;
  • Adapted sports;
  • Inclusive events;
  • Sharing knowledge;
  • School awareness programmes, for preschool children up to University students.


"Life cannot stop, nor the emotion we feel, the willpower we have, the strength we find and the courage we discover.

With our help and work, the lives of thousands of people with reduced mobility do not stop. No matter what, they find new paths through employment, sports, and other activities."
