Rotary members protect children from Polio in Ghana

Ghana has succeeded in recording no wild polio virus for three-continuous years. In support of these efforts, business and professional leaders from The Netherlands and the United States traveled to Ghana to help immunize children under the age of five against polio during Ghana’s Integrated Child Health campaign from 1-5 November.

The 120-plus-member team administered the drops of oral polio vaccine to children from fixed posts that were established in every community throughout the country. In addition to polio immunizations, children were immunized against measles, received Vitamin A supplements and free bed nets to help prevent malaria and other mosquito born illnesses.
