Since 1988 Rotary International and their partners have been on a mission to eradicate Polio throughout the world. At that time there were 350,000 cases in 125 countries and today, thanks to the tireless work of Rotary members, our partners and volunteers only two countries remain where Polio is endemic.
Rotary members have contributed more than $2.1 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect nearly 3 billion children in 122 countries from this paralyzing disease. Rotary’s advocacy efforts have played a role in decisions by governments to contribute more than $10 billion to the effort.
Kingston members have supported Rotary`s mission to rid the world of Polio since 1988 and still do today. Our fundraising efforts and projects have resulted in us receiving recognition from The Rotary Foundation for 4 consecutive years.
Members of Kingston Rotary Club have taken part in mass immunisation days to immunise 100 million children in India in one day.
The End Polio Now campaign is funded by donations to Rotary's own charity Foundation (see more)
