Background
Rotary, along with our partners, has reduced polio cases by 99 percent worldwide since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines commenced in 1979. With the wonderful news on August 26 2020 that the African continent is now Polio free we are very close to eradicating polio with Rotarians helping to immunise more than 2 billion children against polio in 122 countries. 
 
Role of the District Committee
The main role of the District Polio Plus committee will be to assist in coordinating the always successful Charity Film Night fundraising activity in each Area to celebrate Rotary Day (Rotary's birthday) on February 23 2021. Clubs may also be involved in other funds raising innovative activities that support the END POLIO campaign. Ensure your Area Governor is aware of and included in your clubs activities. Some clubs may join together for a joint event that may raise public awareness and get the activity included in your local media, again raising public awareness about ending Polio and about Rotary.
 
Arch Klumph Newsletter
The Foundation Newsletter published quarterly will be circulated to each club. Your clubs and / or your Areas activities can be included in the Newsletter by providing information and photos to Newsletter Editor Rowley Tompsett at rowleytompsett@optus.com.au
