World Polio Day is this Tues, Oct. 24. Polio? ? ? you say, we haven't heard about that disease in 60 years! Of course, that's right - the vaccines wiped it away from US and North America quickly - no more iron lungs, no heavy leg braces. But it remained a crippler in South Asia and Africa. Rotary, the Gates Foundation and World Health Org. have been fighting it for almost 30 years - so close now - only 11 new Wild cases in the entire world so far this year (Pakistan & Afghanistan). We and all 1.2 million Rotarians urge you to help ERADICATE POLIO!
