About Rotary Foundation Canada:
Founded in 1967, the Rotary Foundation of Canada enables Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty. Rotary International is a community-based service organization whose mission is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian services. There are 735 Canadian clubs registered with Rotary International. The Foundation receives all its donations from these Canadian clubs.
The Foundation raises funds for Rotary International’s programs which are categorized as PolioPlus, global humanitarian projects and district-level projects. In F2016, 29% of program expenses went towards PolioPlus, a program which provides funding and mobilizes volunteer support to eradicate polio around the world. The success of this program can be seen in the near eradication of the disease. The World Health Organization reports that the number of polio cases worldwide has decreased by more than 99%, from an estimated 350,000 in 125 countries in 1988 to 37 reported cases in 3 countries (Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria) in 2016. Despite the progress, the World Health Organization reports that as long as a single child remains infected, children in all countries are at risk of contracting polio due to the infectious nature of the disease.
Its global humanitarian projects are in the areas of peace and conflict prevention, disease prevention and treatment, basic education and literacy and many more. District-level projects enable Rotary clubs to address immediate needs within local communities.
It reports that its Hard To Reach project in Nigeria has delivered over 90,000 doses of vitamin A supplements and over 99,000 deworming tablets to isolated communities in need of medical care as well as polio vaccinations.
