Given the contribution of Rotary clubs over a number of years to ending polio, it is gratifying to note the significant success that has been achieved. The disease now remains in only 2 countries in the world, with very few cases identified this year and total polio eradication is now an achievable target. It is important that the immunisation programme continues (even in non-affected countries) for at least the next three years until the wild polio virus can be eliminated and no longer spread by potential carriers.
The club has donated to the End Polio Now Appeal and the donation will be matched 2 for 1 by the Bill Gates Foundation.

Community service is one of the Avenues of Service which encourages Rotarians to offer service to their communities. Every Rotary club and every Rotarian assumes a responsibility to find ways to improve the quality of life for those in their communities
