According to Bill Gates, “ We are achingly close to getting rid of polio – more than 99% of the way there.  Finishing the job is a big challenge, but it is very doable if we keep up the effort.”  Your generous contribution will enable us to immunize 400 million children against polio every year.  It will improve the ability of surveillance and monitoring systems to diagnose new cases and detect the wild poliovirus.  It will help hire more than 150,000 health workers to go door to door to find every child that needs to be vaccinated and will also be used to track the virus in water,  and sewage and provide National Immunization Day materials. 
Polio is Rotary’s #1 priority!  If polio is not eradicated, hundreds of thousands of children could be paralyzed.  Global health costs will rise dramatically, and many children’s quality of life will be drastically diminished.
Your donation will save lives and give a child a chance at a prosperous future.  
Thank you for your continued support!  We are almost there and once there we shall celebrate!
