End Polio Now

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 30 years. Our goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.

We've helped immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries. So far, Rotary has contributed more than $1.8 billion toward eradicating the disease worldwide.

Today, polio remains endemic only in Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan. But it’s crucial to continue working to keep other countries polio-free. If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.

Tony Annanadale, (President) and Cliff Daly (Projects Manager) from the MenzShed gave an interesting and inspirational account of the development of the Menz Shed Kapiti (Waikanae Beach) into one of the largest and most successful clubs in New Zealand, with 140 members of which at least 40 regularly turnout on Tuesdays and Thursdays at their property at Waikanae Beach. "A place where men can do what men do.........
The club’s annual golf fixture was held at the Paraparaumu Beach Golf course, raising a record amount. Beneficiaries were the new Wellington Regional Children’s hospital (Trish Lee), $5,000 - towards the fitout of the Rotary whanau rooms (a Rotary D9940 centennial project). A further $1000 was donated to Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club (Murray Armstrong) for Junior golf. The balance of the funds raised will be used for a wide range of local youth projects that the Rotary Club of Kapiti supports. President Shirley Stratton expressed thanks to all of the supporting businesses who contributed funds or prizes, particularly principal sponsor Kapiti Hire (Tim Mikkelson).

Superb day for a sausage sizzle at Mitre 10 to raise funds for End Polio Now. In excess of $500 was raised - including donations. 
This was on top of club member's efforts at the Ride the Train to End Polio event to promote World Polio Day last week.
