Its World Polio Day
Polio has almost been eradicated across the World but there are still a few countries where this is not the case.
Many of Hounslow's Labour Councillors have joined with Hounslow Rotary Club in calling on residents to raise awareness of the disease.
The following iis on the Council's Homepage.
"To mark World Polio Day (Monday 24 October), Hounslow’s deputy mayor, Cllr Ajmer Grewal and Hounslow Rotary Club are calling on residents to help raise awareness of the disease.
You can do your bit by commenting, posting, tweeting and talking on as many social networks as possible, including news sites, using the following phrase #rotaryendpolio in messages.
The date also marks the birthday of Dr Jonas Salk, who developed the world’s first safe and effective vaccine against this crippling and sometimes deadly disease."
Then it gives the link I have embeded in the word Polio.
Good for Hounslow Council and the Hounslow Rotary Club.
