End Polio Finally - Donate now via your local Rotary.
Rotary's priority project internationally since 1985 has been the eradication of polio. It was in 1985 that Rotary launched PolioPlus, a multi-million dollar initiative to immunise all the world's children against polio. Since then more than two billion children have received the oral polio vaccine and endemic polio has almost been eliminated across the planet. Together we can finish the job.
