The Rotary Club of Kenton on Sea celebrated the eradication of the wild polio virus in Africa by Zoom-sharing with members and Friends of Rotary, a very personal polio story by PDG Greg Cryer. This was followed by plenty of fellowship and tasty boerie rolls. Although the cost of these was only R 30, an amount of R 2 700 was raised, which the Club will donate to Rotary’s End Polio Now (EPN) campaign. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will match this at a dollar rate of 2:1. A big thank you to Greg for joining us, and to all our Friends for supporting us again. This is Rotary’s flagship programme into which, since 1985, we have put $2.1 billion. Now, the wild virus exists only in Pakistan and Afghanistan, but we must keep going and finish the job.
As proud supporters, the Rotary Club of Kenton on Sea has partnered with NSRI to assist with fund raising
