Rotary Releases $35 Million
to Combat Polio

 

Rotary has released another $35 million in grants to support the global effort to end polio, bringing the humanitarian service organization’s contribution to $140 million since January 2016.

 

Nearly half of the new funds, $16.15 million, will support emergency response campaigns in Nigeria and the Lake Chad Basin (Chad, northern Cameroon, southern Niger and Central African Republic), where four cases were detected last year after Nigeria had previously gone two years without a case.
