Global community commits to polio eradication  

Rotary pledges $75 million, then rocks Central Park with End Polio Now message  

Sati, your voice was heard!

Last week was a momentous week in the global effort to End Polio Now.

In a historic special session on polio eradication during the UN General Assembly, Rotary presented nearly 7,000 signatures from the EndPolioNow.org petition – including yours!

Rotary Foundation Chair Wilf Wilkinson announced to world leaders and our partners that Rotary pledges another $75 million to fight polio, adding to Rotary’s total contribution of nearly $1.2 billion since launching the PolioPlus program in 1985. Read more at Rotary.orgTIME and the New York TimesView photos.
