  4. 4. Rotary clubs worldwide meet US$ 200 million fundraising challenge Rtn. Amarlal K. Rotary International has succeeded in meeting the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundations US$200 million match in funding for 4-02-2012 polio eradication, raising more than $202.6 million as of 17 9448052578 January. “Well celebrate this milestone, but it doesnt mean that well stop raising money or spreading the word about polio eradication,” Rotary Foundation Trustee John F. Germ told Rotary leaders at the International Assembly in San Diego, California,Wedding Anniversary USA. “We cant stop until our entire world is certified as polio- free.” The fundraising milestone was reached in response to $355 million in challenge grants awarded to The Rotary Foundation by the Gates Foundation. All funds have been earmarked to support polio immunization activities in affected countries where the vaccine-preventable disease continues to paralyze children. “In recognition of Rotarys great work, and to inspire Rotarians in the future, the [Gates] foundation is committing an additional $50 million to extend our partnership,” said Jeff Raikes, chief executive officer of the Gates Foundation. “Rotary started the global fight against polio, and continues to set the tone for private fundraising, grassroots engagement, and Rtn. Srinivasan K.N. & Gayathri maintaining polio at the top of the agenda with key 1-2-2012 Cell : 9448050456 policymakers.” Raikes also addressed Rotary leaders at the International Assembly. The new $50 million grant from the Gates Foundation is not a challenge grant. Since 1988, the incidence of polio has plummeted by more than 99 percent, from about 350,000 cases annually to fewer than 650 cases reported so far for 2011. The wild poliovirus is now endemic in only four countries: Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, and Pakistan. However, India on 13 January marked a full calendar year without a case, paving the way for its removal from the endemic list. But other countries also remain at risk for polio cases imported from the endemic countries. In Africa in 2011, ChadRtn. PHF. Deepak D.S. Solanki & Dr. Suman and the Democratic Republic of the Congo had significant 1-2-2012 Cell : 9845116835 outbreaks. Also in 2011, a small cluster of polio cases in China, which had been polio-free for a decade, was traced to Pakistan. Rotary club members not only reached into their own pockets to support the Gates challenge, but also engaged their communities in a variety of creative fundraising projects, such as a fashion show in California that raised $52,000, benefit film screenings in New Zealand and Australia that netted $54,000, and a pledge-supported hike through Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, that brought in $38,000. Many events were planned around 24 October, widely observed as World Polio Day. To date, Rotarians worldwide have contributed more than $1 billion toward the eradication of polio, a cause Rotary took onRtn. PP PHF. Raghu. M.S & Chandrika . in 1985.
