Polio has declined rapidly since 1985, but the fight isn’t over. While polio is a crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease, for as little as US$0.60, a child can be vaccinated for life. If we don’t finish the fight right now, more than 10 million children under the age of five could be paralyzed in the next 40 years.
Rotary raises funds to make sure every child receives access to the polio vaccine. See the impact your contribution can make
