Rotary commits $35 million to fight polio
Of the sum, $8.15million will go toward stemming the recent outbreak in Nigeria and countries in the Lake Chad Basin River including northern Cameroon, southern Niger, the Central African Republic and Cameroon.
Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) are acting to immunize children in Nigeria and countries in the Lake Chad Basin. Nearly one-fourth of the funds ($8.15 million) will support the emergency response campaigns in this at-risk region, and last month Rotary provided $500,000 to immediately assist with the outbreak response.
