Frome Selwood Rotary Club's International Activities
The club supports many international projects some of which originate within Rotary and others through contact with specific overseas organisations.
Rotary's largest project has been to try, along with the United Nations and World Health Organisations and more recently the Bill Gates Foundation, to eradicate polio. We have almost achieved this. Polio is now only endemic in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria. India has been Polio free for 3 years now.
To learn more about Rotary's work on polio see Rotary's End Polio Now website.
The Frome Selwood Rotary Club also supports two separate organsiations that were created by Rotary Clubs in GB & ireland but now operate as independent charities, though both retain cery strong connections to their founding Rotary Club: WorldWater Works and Shelterbox.
An Honorary Member of the club is Mark Cook the founder of Home and Homes for Children, which the club has supported since it was founded.
