The Rotary Foundation
One Reason We Give to The Rotary Foundation
Yesterday, the World Health Organization announced that the African Region including Nigeria has been CERTIFIED as a Polio Free Region. Nigeria did not report any wild polio Virus Cases in the last four years, resulting in the region declared/Certified as polio free. This takes us a step forward in Rotary's 30+ year initiative to End Polio Now.
Our club has supported this initiative - with $172,625 in total giving to polio eradication through June 30, 2020. And several of our members - Roy Wise, Laura Kann, Robert and Charlene Hall - have personally given the polio vaccine to hundreds of children in India.
This is just one of the many ways that The Rotary Foundation helps us to make a difference in the world. To learn more about how to give to The Rotary Foundation, contact PDG Bill Mulkey or President Ardy.
