October 24, 2018 was International Polio Day. It aims to raise awareness of the disease and its consequences, while also celebrating the fact that worldwide 99.8% of polio has been reduced since 1988. 
Now only 3 countries remain affected, however, reported cases have risen in 2018 to 20, with 16 cases reported in Afghanistan and 4 in Pakistan so far.
The rotary club of Alexandra is pleased to support the ongoing global effort to END POLIO once and for all as no child should die from a vaccine preventable disease!
