Club: Rotary Club de Porto Alegre – Beira Rio
Event: Participation of DG João Torrres and spouse Rosane at the Rotary International Assembly in San Diego, in January 2017.
Contribution to the polio plus fund: R$31,40 = US$10, transformed in US$30, with the matching of the Gates Foundation, being enough to vaccinate 50 children.
Message (from Claudete Sulzbacher): One of our challenges, in Brazil and in the countries where Portuguese is spoken, is to transform trips, representing Rotary or not, in events to help to end polio. Our gratitude to the DG João Torres, of District 4680, and spouse Rosane, for having accepted our challenge and transforming their trip to San Diego, for the International Assembly of 2017, in an event to help to end polio, starting to make the difference since then.
