Continuing the Success of End Polio Now

Our purple for polio crocus, planted in Bantock Park with the help of children from Merridale and Low Hill Primary schools last October are now in full, beautiful bloom, reminding us to complete the job of eliminating the sourge of polio.  From a situation where there were 1000 new cases a day across 125 countries in the world when we started in 1985, we are winning but can’t give up the fight. In 2023, there were just 6 new cases in Pakistan and 6 in Afghanistan.
