Rotary Minute
The New York Times has published a major front-page story about the polio eradication effort in Pakistan, one of three remaining polio-endemic countries. The article highlights Rotary’s leadership role, focusing on the contributions of Pakistani Rotarians, led by National PolioPlus Committee Chair Aziz Memon. Rotarians are portrayed as dedicated and courageous front-line volunteers, despite sometimes facing personal risks. The story also mentions International PolioPlus Committee Chair Robert Scott’s trip to Pakistan in March.
