Polio Immunizations

Gives 66 polio immunizations
Gift Description:
$36.40 provides 200 doses of polio vaccine to protect 66 children from the incurable disease. We have waged an epic battle to eliminate polio. In many regions, we’ve won. But in other areas, millions of children remain at risk. Polio is a highly infectious disease transmitted through contaminated food and water. The virus invades the nervous system and can cause irreversible paralysis in a matter of hours. With only 416 reported cases in 2013, we are closer than ever to destroying polio for good. But until it is fully eliminated, polio remains a threat to children worldwide. Your donation furthers the fight against polio and improves the life of each child who receives a vaccination.
