Together, we are "This Close" to Ending Polio
Since the mid-80s, Rotary and its partners have been working hard to make history by eradicating the crippling disease Polio from our Planet. Back then, 350,000 new Polio cases were reported each year.
This has reduced to less than 1,000 new cases in 2013 - a 99% reduction in 30 years.
To achieve this, Millions of Rotary volunteer hours have ben donated to achieve this result. It's been hard work, but so rewarding.
Internationally, the 33,000+ Clubs that form the Rotary Network have united to this major ambition. We've received $Millions in donations from people and businesses like you the world over.
In fact - Rotary takes our hat off to one person in particular - Mr Bill Gates from Microsoft Corporation, who has invested Hundreds of Millions of Dollars partnering with Rotary and YOU. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are equally determined to see it through to the END!

In partnership, we're all making a real, measurable difference.
Although Australia is Polio Free these days, we are still conscious that this horrific disease does remain only one Plane trip away from our shores. No country can let down its guard at this final stage.
Quite simply - we are focussed on ensuring our immunisation program continues to build and reach into every corner of the globe - into the most disadvantaged countries to ensure all of our children are automatically immunised in their very early years. Only then will we see the total eradication of Polio by preventing the disease from passing from one generation to the next. We have THREE countries to go!
We ask you to continue to support our Polio eradication project.
Individuals at Adelaide West Club plus the Club itself have proudly donated directly to this project each year.
