Rotarians in Action in Our Community and Around the World
District 6440 News
Pakistan remains one of the final reservoirs in the world where the wild polio virus circulates unrestrained. One of the major challenges to eliminating the virus are the misperceptions and mistrust that persist in high risk areas of the country, places where access to basic health services and education is limited. Rotarians are helping to address these misperceptions through the implementation of health camps, where families can receive polio drops, health services, sanitary and medical supplies and important educational materials. This is having an important effect on the program, helping to drive demand for the polio vaccine and developing a public health infrastructure and leaving a legacy that will endure long after the last polio case has been reported.

Do you know of any outstanding high school students who could benefit from developing their leadership skills? If so, encourage them to apply for sponsorship by your Rotary Club for one of the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) retreats in Spring 2015 (March 12-15 and April 16-19). Student feedback on this experience is always outstanding. Take a look at this video to get a feel for RYLA.
2015 Program information is available by clicking here.
