Ade Adepitan endorses the polio campaign
RIBI President Nan McCreadie met up with Ade recently....
and discussed several projects with him especially the Rotary polio project. Ade was very keen to help Rotary especially with it's work in Nigeria, his country of birth, where he contracted polio as a very young child. Ade has backed the campaign and should appear in national newspapers in the next few days. He said, "With the public’s help, we now have the chance to eradicate this disease once and for all and there has never been a better time to donate. Every £1 donated will translate into £3 with matched funding from the Gates Foundation. £3 is enough to vaccinate seven children against polio, so I am urging everyone to get behind Rotary and help make history by ridding the world of this disease forever.”
Ade wants to work with Rotary on several projects with polio being just one of them. There are other projects involving wheelchairs and a possibility should his schedule allow for him to make an appearance at the RIBI Conference in Birmingham in March. We will keep you posted as his involvement with Rotary grows.
