What are we doing to eradicate polio? The biggest challenge before us is for each one of us to contribute to the Rotary Foundation to urgently complete the target of USD200 million that qualifies us to get Bill & Milinda Gates Foundation contribution. Luckily, Rotarians around the world have raised USD140 million. Yet, there is much more to be achieved.
Our District 3080 launched a fund-raising campaign "Children for Children", where school children in schools around the District are reaching out to the community to raise funds. More details can be had from DG Madhukar Malhotra or me.
We have been going around the schools and sensitising them about what Rotary is doing. Surprisingly, not very many know about Rotary's role. It's time each one of us reach out, share the facts about Rotary's contribution to this entire global campaign to eradicate polio from the face of this earth.
Here's a video produced by Rotary International and released last year on World Polio Day, i.e. 24th October 2009. It is interesting...informative...and possibly you might meet the Rotarians you know. How many did you spot? Check out.
