Gretchen Bren will be going to Nigeria again for her 8th trip to Kaduna (and her 13th polio immunization trip worldwide) at the end of October. 
This year, they are working with one of the local Rotary Clubs in Kaduna to pass out Malaria nets to some of the families that are being immunized.  The cost per net is $5 each. Gretchen is taking donations in any amount for the nets. It is hard to immunize against a disease like polio that is not seen as much when people are suffering with malaria on a regular basis.  A collection bucket will be available at the club meetings.
Thank you all for your support over the years for polio eradication -- we are now so close we are starting the Countdown to History  (information on this new campaign is available at if you haven't received it yet)
