Eradication of Polio
The programme has been a thrust area every year for the club. We have immunized over 6000 children, by participating in National Immunization Days in the past 5 years through ward 50 and 51 under the Calcutta Municipal Corporation. The awareness programmes educating the community have been conducted in ‘basties’ (slums) around the wards. Also a follow-up agenda has been maintained.
We have completed many projects with our foreign partners through Matching Grants – Clubs from France, Germany, Canada and U.S.A. have all been good friends in service. We thank them eternally for lending a hand to serve the community in need around us.
