Overall Rotary is well on the way to meeting the $200million challenge
Polio is a crippling and potentially fatal disease. Fortunately,
although incurable, Polio is easy to prevent. A child can be vaccinated for just 50p, protecting the child against this terrible
disease for life.
Through one of the world’s biggest immunisation programmes,
Polio has been 99 per cent eradicated – so this is one last push
to destroy the disease for good.
Why is it called Purple Pinkie? When a child is vaccinated, they have a purple stamp put on their little finger. So each Purple
Pinkie brings us closer to making Polio history.
By supporting the Purple Pinkie campaign, you can help make the pain and life-limiting effects of Polio
a thing of the past.
