A group of Rotarian physicians from India — most of them orthopedic surgeons — assisted by nonmedical volunteers, performed corrective surgeries on young polio patients ages 1 to 18 at two hospitals in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital. The project was partly funded by a US$50,000 Rotary Foundation Matching Grant.
Project leader and Past RI President Rajendra K. Saboo said the mission also aimed to create awareness of the need for immunizations and of Rotary’s efforts to eradicate the disease.
