ROTARY INTERNATIONAL & POLIOPLUS After more than 20 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating polio, but a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions. Our goal is to make polio only the second disease to be wiped off the face of the earth. In the lead-up to the FIFA World Cup in South Africa this summer, Rotary members across Africa are gearing up for the final push to kick polio out of the continent. In February, Rotary launched its ―Kick Polio Out of Africa‖ awareness campaign with the symbolic kicking of a soccer ball signed by Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, himself afflicted with polio as a child. From Cape Town, one of the host cities to the 2010 World Cup, the ball is travelling through 22 polio-affected countries to Egypt, en route to the Rotary International Convention in Montréal, Canada, in June. The journey is being underwritten by DHL Express. During the ball’s four-month journey from the southern tip of the continent to Alexandria, Egypt, Rotary clubs in polioaffected African countries are organizing football-related awareness events to mobilize the public for Pan-African mass immunizations this spring. Former South African President Nelson Mandela, in his 1996 address at the Organization for African Unity Summit, formally kicked off the “Kick Polio Out of Africa” campaign. “We are calling on the continent's football players to bring their enormous influence to this campaign,” Mandela said. “Only unified efforts which galvanize whole societies towards these goals will succeed in kicking this virus, that looks so much like a football, out of Africa and eventually, out of the world.” Your support of the “Kick Polio Out of Africa” campaign will help support the effort to end polio forever. Signatures gathered online will be presented to the leadership of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative partners as a show of global support for the campaign. All donations will help Rotary raise $200 million to match $355 million in challenge grants received from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The resulting $555 million supports immunization campaigns in countries where polio continues to infect and paralyze children. As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk. By donating now, you can help Rotary achieve a polio-free world. For as little as US$0.60 worth of vaccine, a child can be protected against polio for life. ABOUT POLIO Polio is a crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease. Polio (poliomyelitis) still strikes children, in countries in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Polio can cause paralysis and sometimes death –it often advances within hours and is almost always irreversible. Because there is no cure, the best protection is prevention. Since 1988, Rotary International and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI)—the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and the U.S. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention—have worked to end polio. To date, Rotary has contributed more than $900 million and countless volunteer hours to help immunize more than 2 billion children.

Thanks to Rotary and its partners, the world has seen polio cases plummet by more than 99 percent, preventing five million instances of childhood paralysis and 250,000 deaths. When Rotary began its eradication work, polio infected more than 350,000 children annually. In 2009, fewer than 1,700 cases were reported worldwide.

The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular to encourage: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service High ethical standards in business and professionals; the recognition of worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business and community life. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

The Four Way Test Is it the TRUTH? - Is it FAIR to all concerned? - Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIP? Will it be BENIFICIAL to all concerned?
