Rotary clubs fight polio

ClubThe Auas Rotary Club and Rotary Club Windhoek recently held the first ever Rotary President’s Cup Challenge (Go-Kart racing), an initiative aimed to raise funds for Rotary International’s Polio Plus campaign. The initiative raised over N$3 000. A number of Rotary club members participated in the challenge. The final race was a face-off between the current presidents, Mike Spraggon of Auas Rotary Club and Dirk Schuler of Rotary Club Windhoek. Rotarians – as members of the clubs are known – are business and professional leaders who volunteer in their communities to promote world understanding and peace. Rotary clubs all over the world encourage high ethical standards and carry out humanitarian projects to address issues such as poverty, health, hunger, education and the environment. There are currently three Rotary Clubs in Windhoek.
