Vale Sam Owori and Polio Plus

It was a huge shock and great loss to Rotary when Rotary International President-elect Sam F. Owori died unexpectedly on 13 July due to complications from surgery. Sam was a member of the Ugandan Rotary Club of Kampala for 38 years and was to take up the role of Rotary International President in July 2018. The following link provides further background to the wonderful work that Sam Owori did for Rotary:

Sam Owori was a very important person in eradicating polio and was a member of both the Africa Regional PolioPlus Committee and the International PolioPlus Committee. In recognition of his work in polio, a Memorial Fund (Sam F. Owori Memorial to Polio) has been established. If you can make a donation to this Fund it would be a great way to honor the work of Sam Owori. Please use the link below to make a donation.
