ROTARY SETS GUINNESS RECORD

 

Rotary finishes the ‘World’s Biggest Commercial’ campaign with more than 115,000 supporters from 172 countries adding their photo to help end polio.

 

Although polio has not been seen in Great Britain and Ireland for many years, it is vital that we continue our efforts to eliminate the disease worldwide in order that it can never return. Rotary clubs in Great Britain and Ireland have so far donated over £20 million (€24 million) to End Polio Now.

Our efforts to eradicate polio have been described as one of the finest humanitarian projects the world has ever known and Rotary has even been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. The eradication of polio when completed will be one of the most significant achievements in public health since the eradication of smallpox.

 

 

 Our charity, The Rotary Foundation, has been running, since 1917. The Rotary Foundation has awarded more than 1.1billion in humanitarian and educational grants. In Great Britain and Ireland, more than £2million is raised every year towards The Rotary Foundation. The charity finances projects which reach out to thousands of people every year to overcome poverty, hunger, disease, illiteracy, pollution and other barriers to decent living.
