From the weekend Wall Street Journal: “Nigeria Ends Polio in Victory for Global Polio Eradication”. The article cites RI’s involvement in polio eradication and states that Nigeria has been declared polio free leaving Pakistan and Afghanistan as the last two countries with polio cases. This is a HUGE DEAL because just three years ago Africa’s most populous country recorded more than half of all polio cases world wide. We are this close to eradicating polio and with your and the help of Rotarians around the world WILL do so.

Hungarian Refugee Crisis
As you know, refugees are streaming across Eastern Europe, needs are many. Our contact with the Budapest Rotary Club Henning Sorknaes, whom many of you have met, is developing a plan of action to address the most pressing issues in the most appropriate areas. One area is in north Serbia. Club 29’s first Matching Grant project involved joining the Budapest-City and Senta Rotary Clubs to help upgrade cardio monitoring equipment in the local hospital in northern Serbia, approx. 20 miles from the area where the major refugee camps for are located. Our goal for Club 29 is to raise $20,000. $11,500 has already been pledged by our members and this will be matched 1/3 by District 5750 to help our fellow Rotarians alleviate the suffering of these refugees. Thank you for support of this humanitarian effort. Pledge Here
