l'Alfàs del Pi International - Our mission

World Polio Day


On the 24th of October, Rotary International celebrates the World Polio Day, where Rotary members around the world work actively in order to eradicate polio once and for all.

“In 2019 More than 4,000 clubs in 136 countries organized more than 5,600 events to raise awareness and funds for polio eradication. Brazil, the United States, Nigeria, Italy, and the Philippines held the most events, respectively. This year, club events included art celebrations, athletic challenges, dance festivals, and educational initiatives”

Our club was created in 2017 and has since then arranged projects in order to raise awareness or money for the Polio Foundation. In October of 2017 we decided to interview Maj-Lis Bruse who has Polio. The idea of this interview was to create awareness how it is to live with this horrible disease and what Rotary does in order to prevent it . The articles were published in Norwegian, Russian and Dutch. The Town hall of Alfaz del Pi, also made a press release regarding this.

The same year our club also organized a very beautiful benefit concert where all income went to our own Polio Foundation. The artist was the extraordinary young pianist from Rusia, Filipp Moskalenko who offered the audience a heartwarming and impressive performance.

The following two years our club decided to combine the Alfaz International Day with the World Polio Day. Our goal was to raise awareness and to reach out to as many people as possible within our own community.
