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.
