RI District 1420; ESTONIA (and) FINLAND; Zone 17
Have the Great new year 2023 from Rotary International Fellowship – International fellowship of Golfing Rotarian’s South Asia.
I invite you and your clubs in your district to Imagine Rotary to eradicate polio through your efforts by participating in international golf events. Let me start it with a humour in Golf:
One day, Tim had been waiting for ages for his pal John to show up for their usual round of golf.
“You’re late on the tee, John,” he says when he finally arrives.
“Yes, well, being a Sunday, I had to toss a coin to see whether I should go to church or go and play golf,” replied John.
“Okay, but why are you so late?” asked Tim.
“I had to toss it 15 times!” 😊
Rotary has been working to eradicate Polio for more than three decades. Our goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.
As a founding partner of the Global Polio eradication initiative, we’ve reduced Polio cases by 99.9 percent since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.
Rotary members have contributed over $2.1 Billion and countless volunteer hours to protect nearly 3 billion children in 122 countries from this paralysing disease.
Today polio remains endemic only in Afghanistan and Pakistan. But it’s crucial to continue working to keep other counterespionage. If all eradication efforts stopped today, within ten years, polio could paralyse as many as 200,000 children each year.
We have shown the world that vaccine works!
