Rotary, along with our partners has reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. We are close to eradicating polio, there are only two endemic countries in the world – Pakistan and Afghanistan. Rotary world-wide is working hard to raise the 3.2 billion US dollars required to finish the job and eradicate Polio. Together with our partners, World Health Organisation (WHO), United Nations and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation we will finish the job, but we need your help.
The Rotary Club of Templestowe are proud to be doing our part in raising money to End Polio and fulfilling Rotary’s promise to the “Children of the World”.
