Rotary, along with our partners, has reduced polio cases by 99 percent worldwide since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. We are close to eradicating polio, but we need your help. Whether you have a few minutes or a few hours, here are some ways to make a global impact and protect children against polio forever.
For more information about eradicating Polio, visit the Polio Plus website.
Water is life. An adult can survive without food a few weeks, but human body can't go more than a few days without water. Yet 1.1 billion people do not have access to safe water and 2.4 billion are without sanitation.
Rotarians can raise awareness in their communities by helping to build water wells, fund water conservation, conduct river cleanups and install sanitation systems. Please visit world-wide water initiatives pages for more information about Rotary and non-Rotary water projects.
Anyone could join this global initiative through donating or getting involved to the service projects. For more information, visit the Village Water Supply website.
