24 Oct 2020 Once Only Event
Rotary International Parramatta Branch is hosting a fundraising Comedy Show event in support of End Polio Now.
Poliomyelitis is a highly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5.
Most know it as poliovirus. The virus is spread person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can attack the nervous system, and in some instances, lead to paralysis. Although there is no cure, there is a safe and effective vaccine – one which Rotary and their partners use to immunize over 2.5 billion children worldwide.
There are just 2 countries left, Afghanistan and Pakistan, but unless Polio is totally eradicated it would only take around 10-15 years to reinfect the world back to where it was before we started!
For every dollar raised at this event, Bill Gates will contribute $2 to the cause.
