Rotary International is a worldwide organisation driving the End Polio Now Campaign. Because this charitable organisation reaches across the world, it provides a service here to local groups as well as promoting initiatives abroad.

It’s taken 30 years, but thanks to the Rotary initiative, we are now so very close to eradicating this preventable disease forever. The campaign now also addresses issues such as the permanent supply of clean water and fundamental provision in disaster zones.
