Awareness on Polio 


On the eve of World Polio Day, Rotary Club of Chennai Radiance contributed to this global project by conducting a session to their Interact School Villivakkam Panchayat Middle School on the importance of this drive and how important it is to hold the momentum of this campaign for a Polio free world. Thanks to the vision of Rotary and the commitment of the generations of Rotarians who have followed, we now have fewer cases of polio than at any time in history. Couple of countries are still polio-endemic; wild virus still circulates in only one remaining reservoir, on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Rotary’s involvement has been wide-ranging: we have globally raised over billion dollars to date, and have contributed countless volunteer and staff hours to the practical work of eradication, including immunization, fundraising and advocacy.
