The Rotary Foundation
The Rotary Foundation is our own charity and has helped millions of people all over the world and within our own city. The main project at the moment is our aim to rid the world of the crippling disease, polio with our "End Polio Now" campaign. When we first made the promise to rid the world of polio in 1985 there were over 50,000 cases reported each year, we are now so close as it is now only endemic in 3 countries and Africa has not had a case for almost a year. With global figures now down to just less than 50 cases a year we are this close.
