Hello Rotarians in District 7070,

Greetings from India ! This email finds you in best of  Health and Rotary Spirits! This is the Last Chance to do Polio Drops before India switches to Injectables. Our club showcased some projects during RI Convention at House of Friendship in Hamburg where Rotarians from your District visited our booth and asked us to connect with you and share information on our January 2020 Polio Campaign @ Agra , India .....

 

 

Each year, we receive numerous comments by Rotarians that they “wish we knew how to join a Polio Campaign trip.”  We are asking your help to get this information into the hands of your club members as soon as possible so that your Rotarians can have this experience..

2015,India was declared polio free ,however because of the surge of new polio cases in Afghanistan & Pakistan with regular visiting of non-immigrants we have the fear polio can come back to India so we have to still keep on working and fight against Polio “ KEEP INDIA POLIO FREE MISSION ” .

Rotary Club of Agra Taj Mahal Initiative – conducting Polio Mega Campaign January 3 - 5,  2020 , if any of your club/district members are interested please ask them to sign up . Interest form and specific information attached herewith .
