POLIO ERADICATION INITIATIVE:
In 1988, 350,000 people—mostly children under the age of 5—were paralyzed or died from polio. In an effort to protect the children of the world, Rotary and its partners formed the Global Polio Eradication Initiative with the bold commitment to permanently eradicate the disease.
Today cases have been reduced by 99.9% and it is estimated that 19.4 million people are walking who would otherwise have been paralyzed and 1.5 million lives have been saved. We can’t stop now. Until the disease is eradicated we risk 200,000 polio cases annually within 10 years.
For each $1 you donate to eradicate polio, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation donates $2. Your donation of $25 becomes $75 and 25 of the world’s most vulnerable children can be protected from polio. Thank you for your generosity and support. Together we end polio.
