Rotary International’s “End Polio Now” Campaign in Ghana

Last Saturday, Syambra and I participated in Rotary International’s “End Polio Now” Campaign in Ghana.

Normally, as a Rotarian, I would donate at my local Rotary (District 5890 in Houston) but now I belong to District 9100 in Accra.

We actually get to participate in the immunizations! Two drops on the child’s tongue is all it takes…plus a little black ink on their fingernail to mark the vaccination.

We actually went to some of the villages where our women clients live but we also went way back into the smaller, more remote villages as well.  Overall, the goal was over 50,000 vaccines over a 3 day period.
