End Polio

Our District has been supporting the Global End Polio Initiative for more than 20 years through continuous contribution and countless volunteer hours to the polio eradication effort. This year, we will organize the End Polio Walk and Carnival on 6 November to bring awareness to both Rotarians and non-Rotarians aiming to raise funds for countries which have not been able to eradicate polio.

What is Polio?

• A highly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5
• Although there is no cure, there is a safe and effective vaccine – one which Rotary and our partners have used to immunize nearly 3 billion children against polio in 122 countries since 1988
• We have reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide and we won't stop until we end the disease for good
