October 24th was the day of the international end of the world polio, guests who did not hold the "purple dress codes" on social dinner, their pink fingers acted as a symbol of support for the campaign.
The immersion of fingers in purple dye, Rotary members wanted to reflect the routine used by medical teams to identify children who were vaccinated, while vaccination clinics were operating in areas where the state of childhood paralysis is still high risk.
Last year, Rotary International, a member of the Cowbridge Club, contributed more than half a billion pounds to global efforts to suppress polyols around the world.
The Rotary organization has a number of key objectives, including humanitarian aid, where the eradication of Polio is a top priority.
In 1985, Polio was endemic in 125 countries around the world, with approximately 350 000 new cases reported each year. As Rotary was involved in supporting the global eradication program, more than 2.5 billion children received oral vaccination, which caused a 99.99% reduction in incidence of the disease.
Polio is now still unique in three countries: Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nigeria. President Michael Long said that they were excited about the success of the evening.
"It's about raising awareness about fundraising, but we are pleased that we could collect over £ 320 for such an incredible initiative.
"We are close to the poles of the free world! This seems remarkable, and we are grateful to all the people who have supported us in previous years in Rotary, that we have gathered the necessary funds to make this happen," he added.
Every pound that Rotary set for the End World Polio campaign, according to Bill and Melinda Gates Fund 2: 1, matched the Rotary ambition for the Polio Free World very accessible.
