Polio Trivia Event Fundraiser
THANK YOU for participating!

Dear Polio EradiCarers,

 

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Polio Trivia Event online fundraiser on 22 May 2021.  We thought it was a fun and effective way to get together, have a good time and most importantly, raise some funds for the Polio Survivors Fund.  In total, the Fund received donations in the amount of CHF5’669 (approx. US$6’300), which is simply fantastic!  THANK YOU for your participation, donations and support!

 

These funds will support children with polio and their families, in countries such as Angola and Somalia, through provision of wheelchairs, physiotherapy, nutritional support and educational support.  It will make a real different in these families’ lives.


Thank you, and please check in with us from time to time on latest developments with the Fund.  We plan to regularly update our homepage with latest news.
