The Rotary drive to end polio throughout the world began back in the 1980s; we're almost there!  Fortunately, along the way we've been joined by very helpful organizations, among them the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which has been a great impetus in this final push with only a few countries and a few new cases.  One variation of the virus has been totally eliminated, but there remains a couple derivative variants.  Please click on this link to get a current picture from Bill Gates.  If you are able to help, please click on this link to donate to help us end polio.  If you want to learn more about Rotary Action regarding polio, including information about the disease and activities to end the awful impact it has on children, please click on this link for more info.
