Rotary International President insists Rotarians have to finish the job of eradicating polio

Rotary International President, Jennifer Jones, is on a brief tour of London. Speaking at the House of Commons she said that Rotary had to deliver on its promise to the children of the world that it would help to eradicate polio.

Jennifer warned Rotarians against polio fatigue by insisting that the world has never been closer to winning the battle against the disease.

Speaking at an End Polio Now event at the House of Commons, the Canadian said she was mindful how Rotarians have heard over many years how close the world was the seizing victory.

“We get fatigued sometimes and people wonder when is it going to happen,” said Jennifer.

“But the reason for nights like tonight is to let you know that we are within reach and we have to have the confidence that we are doing to do this and keep our promise to the children of the world.”
