Ending polio

Thursday, 8 August 2019

My dear friends and Rotary leaders:
 
It is important that every Rotary club has the tools and tactics needed to fulfill our goal of eradicating polio worldwide. I am pleased to share with you two new videos that have been developed to help ensure that your club is in-the-know about the global fight to eradicate polio and Rotary’s decades-long role in that effort.
 
These special programs on polio give background on the status of our efforts, provide historic insight into Rotary’s contribution, and outline the actions we can take to join together to end polio. The two videos, which are 10 and 15 minutes long, can serve as a program for your club’s meeting, or can be shown at public events to ensure that your community is familiar with Rotary and polio.
 
We have come a long way since we started PolioPlus in 1985, but we still have work to do, and I need your help in empowering Rotarians in your club to join the fight.
 
I challenge each of you to use these videos as a tool this year to help raise funds and build awareness for Rotary’s flagship cause.

Yours in Rotary,

Mark Daniel Maloney
President, Rotary International 2019-2020
