With eradication now closer than ever, Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland’s latest campaign, Purple4Polio, is designed to unite communities to engage in activities as part of the final push to eradicate polio for good. Purple4Polio aims to plant purple crocus corms all over the UK to raise awareness of the eradication campaign. In 2016-17, 7 million corms were planted.
The campaign ties in with the 100 year anniversary of The Rotary Foundation, Rotary’s own and only charity, which has played a key role in making polio eradication become close to a reality, along with hundreds of other projects both in Great Britain and Ireland and overseas.
Rotary GBI has a full set of web pages about the Purple4Polio campaign.
