As a recent case of Polio in Malawi sadly reminds us, children around the world are only safe from this cruel disease when every child is vaccinated. The case in Malawi is known to have come from Pakistan; with Afghanistan, one of only two countries where Polio is still endemic. Malawi will need a swift response to activate vaccination teams on the ground. Help us to help End Polio. Your contribution will be matched 2:1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and will go to an exceptional cause that has, since 1988, seen a 99.9% reduction of polio cases, worldwide.

Why I am fundraising for The Rotary Foundation
Through the science of immunisation, Rotary International and its global partners have saved an estimated 20 million children from becoming paralysed by Polio. Since Rotary founded the PolioPlus campaign in 1985, the world has seen a 99.9% reduction in Polio cases.

The Rotary Club of Newlands is committed to helping The Rotary Foundation accomplish its No 1 Philanthropic Goal - the eradication of Polio worldwide.

Only two countries remain endemic: Pakistan and Afghanistan.

We are so close. Please help us achieve the goal by adding your own contribution. Every dollar counts.
