He explained to the children that this very nasty disease is on the verge of being eradicated, with only handfuls of cases being reported in places Afganistan. For the past few years the Rotary club assisted by other local community groups and schools have been planting purple crocus bulbs to raise awareness of Polio. They use purple as when children in other countries receive the polio vaccination their finger is marked with a purple spot. Following the assembly children from 3KB went to the green in the village to help plant 5000 bulbs, which should create quite a display in the spring. The Rotary Club also kindly donated 1000 bulbs to school, which we hope to get planted soon.
