In 1997 Nelson #Mandela pleaded, “I am asking right now that the president of every country in Africa open their doors to allow Rotary, UNICEF, and WHO to make Africa polio-free. We in South Africa can already attest to the value of this program and South Africa is now polio-free. I ask that each president do the same for their #children as we have done for ours.” Pictured here, in #Niamey, #Niger, 30 March 2006, a #mother has her #baby #vaccinated against #polio during #immunization activities. Since 1985 #Rotary has worked to eradicate #polio worldwide. #Niger was removed from the list of endemic countries in 2005. ©Rotary International/Alyce Henson #endpolio #endpolionow #rotaryimages #rotaryinternational #diseaseprevention #eradicatepolio #SM4SG #Africa #southafrica #unicef #WHO #WorldHealthOrganization
