Screening of Breathe at Rheged Centre 20th May 2018
OF CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED FILM ‘BREATHE
SUNDAY 20th MAY - 2.30pm AT RHEGED
To support Rotary’s
ongoing campaign to eradicate polio from the world Penrith Rotary, in
association with the Rheged Centre, Penrith, will be screening the critically
acclaimed film 'Breathe' at 2.30pm on 20th May 2018Tickets available on line at www.rheged.com
or box office 01768868000. All money raised from the showing will be increased
two fold by the Bill and Melinda Gates (Microsoft) Foundation and used in the
final push to eradicate polio.
For some 30 years Rotary
has worked with the World Health Organisation UNICEF, other agencies,
governments and the Gates Foundation, to eradicate polio. Over 2.5 billion
children have been immunised and from some 350,000 cases a year in 125
countries there are now only 3 polio endemic countries, Pakistan, Afghanistan
and Nigeria, which in 2017 experienced in total 22 cases of polio. As at 10th
April this year only 7 cases have occurred. Whereas we are so close to
eradication over 2 billion doses of polio vaccine still need to be administered
each and every year in over 60 countries. Until the world has no cases for 3
years, and total eradication certified, all countries remain at risk,including
the UK – polio is just a plane ride away.
The world is on the
brink of one of the great landmarks in medical history. We are so, so close -
please help us to achieve it.
