ROTARY CLUB OF AKUAPEM-RIDGE RAISES AWARENESS ON WORLD POLIO DAY AND ENCOURAGES DONATIONS TO END POLIO

Akuapem-Ridge, Eastern Eastern Region of Ghana – October 24, 2023–

The Rotary Club of Akuapem-Ridge is joining Rotarians around the world to celebrate World Polio Day on October 22, 2023. World Polio Day is a time to raise awareness of polio and the ongoing efforts to eradicate the disease.

Polio is a highly contagious viral disease that can cause paralysis and death, especially in children under five. There is no cure for polio, but it can be prevented with a vaccine. Thanks to the global polio eradication effort, the number of polio cases has decreased by over 99% since 1988. However, polio is still endemic in two countries: Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The Rotary Club of Akuapem-Ridge is committed to ending polio for good. Rotary is the world’s leading nongovernmental organization in the fight against polio. Since 1985, Rotary has contributed over $2.7 billion to the global polio eradication effort.

On World Polio Day, the Rotary Club of Akuapem-Ridge is encouraging Rotarians and the general public to donate to the Rotary Polio Plus Fund. Donations to the Polio Plus Fund support polio vaccination campaigns, surveillance activities, and research.

“Even though we have made great progress in the fight against polio, there is still more work to be done,” said Rotarian Kwabena Kwadade, President. “By donating to the Polio Plus Fund, you can help us reach every child with the life-saving polio vaccine.”
