It takes a special type of person to be a Rotarian...

... although admittedly having four legs is not usually a requirement.

Still, Eyemouth and District's latest recruit helped get attention at their local Co-op.

Clubs looking to raise their profile can get a set of two outdoor banners and two Rotary wheels as shown at a competitive cost by contacting MPRC chair Archie Ralston. Sadly, it doesn't include the dog.

 

 

 

 

Bill Gates congratulates Rotary

Bill Gates' message to Rotarians on what we have achieved in the campaign to eradicate Polio from the world. Rotarians in District 1020 are very active in this campaign, raising a large sum of money towards it, and many have helped as volunteers in mass immunisation days.

 

Rotary and Polio

Thanks to this treatment...

India Celebrates Three Years Polio Free

Long considered the hardest place in the world from which to eradicate polio, India is now a case study for mounting a successful disease response effort under complex circumstances

In 2009, India was home to almost half of the world’s polio cases. The country then launched a comprehensive polio eradication effort to create a health infrastructure to eliminate the disease. This included a surveillance network of more than 33,000 sites, an army of 2.3 million vaccinators deployed during national immunisation days and strategies to reach children in the country’s hardest to reach areas. This resulted in the delivery of 900 million doses of polio vaccine in 2011 alone.

Rotary has been at the forefront of the fight to end polio since it helped launch the Global Polio Eradication Initiative in the 1980's. This year, every dollar raised for the End Polio Now campaign will be match funded 2:1 by the Make History Today campaign, which will match funds to a total of US$35 million per year until 2018.
