End Polio Now campaign

Oct 20, 2020 | End Polio Now Campaign, Projects

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.
