End Polio Now

The Rotary International campaign to eradicate polio world wide. A further 10,000 crocuses were planted by RCBB in Burnham and Farnham Common this year (adding to those planted each year since 2015) as a reminder that the battle against polio continues.


Although polio has not been seen in Great Britain and Ireland for many years, it is vital that we continue our efforts to eliminate the disease worldwide in order that it can never return.  By the time the world is certified polio-free, Rotary's contributions to the global polio eradication effort will exceed US$2.2 billion, including over US$985 million in matching funds from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Our efforts to eradicate polio have been described as one of the finest humanitarian projects the world has ever known and Rotary has even been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. The eradication of polio when completed will be one of the most significant achievements in public health since the eradication of smallpox.
