Vancouver City Hall, Science World and BC Place were glowing in red on October 24th to recognize Rotary's World Polio Day and to promote Rotary's Polio Plus campaign.
To date, Rotary has contributed more than $2.8 billion to ending polio since 1985. With cases still remaining in Pakistan and Afghanistan continue  to reach the goal of never seeing another child impacted by this disease - with Rotary and its partners vaccinating 400 million children worldwide every year.  A recent, encouraging development has been an agreement with the Taliban government to let Rotary and our international partners re-start door to door vaccinations which had been halted for safety reasons for several years.
Special thanks to our member Ron Suzuki for arranging a Mayoral proclamation of World Polio Day and for organizing for club presidents and members from Rotary clubs across our city to meet and celebrate this campaign with City of Vancouver councillors, as pictured below.
