In 1982-83, Rotarians in Mabalacat,
thought they could make life safer for themselves, their families and their
province if they ridded Mabalacat of polio. Networking with other local organizations,
they did. Their story spread throughout the Rotary network, and Rotarians,
thinking they could do the same thing in their social fabrics, did. Today the world is a safer place because endemic
polio has almost been eliminated, the result of Rotarians advancing the Object of Rotary. Pampanga, Philippines
Throughout the world Rotarians continually make the world a better place - one community at the time - simple because they think they can.
