END POLIO NOW!
After 20 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease, but a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions. Your contribution has help Rotary raise over $200 million to match $355 million in challenge grants received from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The resulting $555 million directly supports immunization campaigns in developing countries, where polio continues to infect and paralyze children, robbing them of their futures and compounding the hardships faced by their families. As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk. The stakes are that high.
The disease has not yet been eradicated. Support Rotary’s dream of a polio-free world. For more information see, The Rotary Polio Story.
