Nigeria sees no wild polio cases for one year 
Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus, putting the country on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease. The last case was reported on 24 July 2014 in the northern state of Kano. If no cases are reported in the coming weeks, the World Health Organization is expected to remove Nigeria from the list of countries where polio is endemic, leaving just two: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Nigeria is the last polio-endemic country in Africa. The continent is poised to reach its own first full year without any illness from the virus on 11 August. “...
 
 
WASHINGTON ROTARY REACHES TO CHINA
 
The Rotary Club of Washington has approved an international project to support the China Little Flower Orphanage in Northern China in the Beijing Region.
 
The Club became aware of the needs through the efforts of Rotarian John Tecklenburg. Prior to moving to the Washington Area, John and his family spent five years in China as a part of John’s work for the Alcoa Corporation in China.
 
Seeing the need for humanitarian efforts with the people of China, John became aware of the orphanage and volunteered. Upon his return home the effort and support for the orphanage continued with trips back to China to work with the staff and children located there. China Little Flower registered in Nebraska in 1998 as a non-profit organization to provide much needed care for abandoned and orphaned children in China. Its work today is in the Beijing Region where the need for services is great.
