Eradicating Polio Worldwide
For every £1.00 we raise, the Bill Gates Foundation gives £2.00. There are no administration costs — all funds go directly to end polio.
So far, $1.8 BILLION has been raised by Rotary and OVER 2 BILLION children vaccinated
1988: Reported 350,000 cases of this paralysing disease in 125 countries
2018: Reported 14 cases worldwide — over 99.9% reduction
Polio remains endemic only in Afghanistan, Nigeria and Pakistan
Please help us with the last difficult steps to total eradication.
