We are THIS close!

October is World Polio month where Rotarians around the globe focus on the eradication of polio. Even with the ups and downs with Covid-19, we still have reason to celebrate a milestone victory over the wild Polio virus. In August last year Africa was certified as Polio Free for the first time in History. That certification notifies the world that there were no wild polio cases identified for 3 years. What an accomplishment! 
We still have two nations left in our battle to eradicate Polio forever. Afghanistan and Pakistan. These places are challenging and with the wild virus still able to roam there, it presents a risk to the rest of the world that we must keep funding and fighting. Not only keep the achievements so far, but to overcome the final obstacle of eradication. 
Sunday October 24th, 2021 is World Polio Day. Even if you have not been directly impacted by Polio, the good work done already has far reaching impact for the future including in the fight against disease such as Covid-19 and Ebola in Africa as shown below. 
Any gift you can make to the Rotary Foundation directed toward Polio will be tripled with matching from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, your dollar turns into three and will help us win this battle! Donate here!
