Ending polio world wide reports:

July 25,2015 marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by the wild poliovirus.

This is the longest the country has ever gone without a case of polio, and it’s a critical step on the path toward a polio-free Africa. It was only a decade ago that polio struck 12,631 people in Africa in one year —three-quarters of all cases in the world.

August 11, 2015 will mark an even greater milestone: one year since the last case of polio in Africa. For Africa to be certified polio-free by the World Health Organization, it must go two more years without a case of polio. To do this, all children in Nigeria must continue to receive the polio vaccine, including those in hard-to-reach and under served areas.

A donation of this magnificent jewellery by a local business is one of community service ideas that made it possible for the Rotary Club of Hamilton to donate $15,000 to eradicate polio.
