PolioPlus Society

A growing number of Rotarians are pledging to contribute an amount of at least 100 Swiss Francs annually to The Rotary Foundation's PolioPlus Fund until global polio eradication is officially certified by the World Health Organization (expected in 2026).

PolioPlus Society members receive a pin certifying their long-term contribution to this effort, as well as a certificate of participation. These contributions also help earn points toward Paul Harris Fellowships.

Polio Event on September 12th in Zurich

On September 12, Rotarian and polio survivor Bashar Asfour stopped in Zurich. Asfour launched his "My Journey to End Polio" tour this year, traveling from Berlin to Chemnitz in an electric VW bus to raise awareness and funds for the EndPolio organization. The tour took in over 200k Swiss Francs.

Here are the details for the event.

We encourage all Rotary clubs in District 2000 to make an EREY contribution for the current club year. This ensures that we continue to have sufficient funds available to co-finance your projects as part of a district or global grant. Your contributions will be counted for the current year.
