The rotary club was founded in 1905 and has been making an impact ever since. One of the Rotary Club’s goals is to end polio. The club’s fight against polio began in 1979 with a project to immunize 6 million children in the Philippines. As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, the Rotary Club reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent since its first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. Today, polio remains endemic in only two countries — down from 125 in 1988. Aidan O’Leary, the polio eradication director for the World Health Organization, spoke about how polio is still a priority during covid and he is optimistic that polio will eventually be eradicated. Rotary members are very passionate about this cause and have contributed more than $2.1 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect nearly 3 billion children in 122 countries from this paralyzing disease. This project started small and has grown into something life-changing. This goal seemed impossible in 1979, which is why it is so important to put even just a little of your time into a cause that you are passionate about so you can see how a little change goes a long way. The goal of the rotary club is to make the world a little better with every project and that is exactly what we do.
We would love to have you join us for a meeting.
