End Polio Now

end-polio-nowSince the mid 80s Rotary and its partners have been working hard to make history by eradicating the crippling disease Polio from our planet. While Australia is currently Polio free, it remains only one plane trip away from us. 2010 saw cases of Polio worldwide reduced to 1,352, a 99% reduction since starting!  Millions of Rotary volunteer hours have been donated to achieve this result.

ROTARY PolioPlus Fund

Rotarians partner together on National Immunization Day in Moradabad, India.Since the PolioPlus program’s inception in 1985, more than two billion children have received oral polio vaccine. But Rotary’s work is not done: The disease has not yet been eradicated. Contribute to the PolioPlus Fund online or by mail to support Rotary’s goal of a polio-free world.

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 will help Rotary raise $200 million to match $355 million in challenge grants received from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The resulting $555 million will directly support 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.

“If we all have the fortitude to see this effort through to the end,
then we will eradicate polio.”
Bill Gates
