Africa’s only polio-endemic country marks one year since its last case of the disease.
In 1988, there were 350,000 cases of polio annually, in 125 countries — about 1,000 cases per day. Rotary and its partners have reduced that figure by more than 99.9 percent, and in 2014, there were fewer than 400 cases in the entire world.
West Seneca Rotary encourages the community to support Rotary’s efforts to end polio by visiting endpolio.org to donate and to learn more.

Your gift to The Rotary Foundation works far beyond that single contribution. The combination of support from Rotarians, Clubs, Districts and The Rotary Foundation has major impact on Global Grant projects. You should feel proud of what your contribution accomplishes. It is more that dollars. It is impact on improving the lives of people.
