[Regarding] your article about the Bill &
Melinda Gates Foundation [“Game changers,”
April 2013], in 1985 Rotary teamed with the
World Health Organization with a goal to
eradicate polio. At that time there were 1,000
children around the world being paralyzed by
polio every day. By 1994, the Americas were
certified polio-free. But Asia and Africa remained difficult to control.
In 2009, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation proposed a $255 million matching grant
to Rotary. This year, to date, there have been
only 16 new cases of polio, in three countries
in the world. As a Rotarian, I am grateful to
the Foundation for their support that has
made this progress possible.
