Rotary International (+ Interact & Rotoract)

Rotary is delighted to be involved with World Swim Against Malaria.

We have a long history of helping in the fight against world diseases. For 20 years Rotary have mobilised the fundraising activities of our now 1.2 million members to combat polio. We are proud to have raised more than US$600m. In 1988 there were 350,000 cases worldwide; in 2003 there were 1,000 cases, a 99% reduction. We have not yet beaten polio but we are close, and our efforts will continue until it is eradicated.

Many don't know that malaria kills more than 1.5 million people a year. It is the worst single killer of children under 5.

It is shocking to think that one child under 5 dies of malaria in Africa every 30 seconds. That's the time it takes you to read this. What's more, these deaths can be avoided.

We know quite a bit about malaria through a number of initiatives, including our REMIT programme, Rotarians for the Elimination of Malaria in Tanzania. We would like many more people to know more about this potentially fatal disease.

So we applaud this initiative of trying to get a million people to swim and Rotarians will play our part. We will have at least 5,000 swimming and raising money and, we hope, many more.

Total Raised: 14,310 LLINs (US$ 62,177)
