Polio has been eradicated in India, but there are millions of children who did not/could not benefit from the Rotary’s Polio plus vaccination program. Polio affected children need support for corrective surgeries, braces and mobility devices to be able to walk and those who survive Paralytic Polio need continued care.
Cerebral Palsy is a group of disorders caused by abnormal brain development in a child that affects their movement, muscle coordination, balance and posture. There is no cure for Cerebral Palsy.
Providing care and treatment to children affected by Polio and Cerebral Palsy is still a challenging task. A donation of $300 will provide a child with corrective surgery and rehabilitation for a year so they too can lead a life of self-reliance and dignity.
