“I would personally like to thank the good work carried out by the Rotary Clubs throughout the world.

“For those of you who don’t know Rotary is a service organisation of business and professional people united worldwide who help those in need.

“They encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and work towards world understanding and peace.

“The Rotary joined forces with Bill Gates to eradicate polio by administering vaccines to countries all over the world and have actually eradicated polio from all countries other than Afghanistan and just one African country.
