Michelle's presentation regarding all areas of Foundation was very informative.
Without foundation the final push to end polio, wouldn’t be possible.
Michelle explained that Rotary members have contributed more than $2.1 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect nearly 3 billion Children in 122 counties from this terrible disease.
Today polio remains endemic only in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
But we need to continue because if eradication efforts stopped today within 10years polio could paralyse as many as 200.000 children each year.
