Nollywood Actress Funke Akindele Joins Bill Gates To Eradicate Polio In The World
The chairman of Microsoft, Mr. Bill Gate who launched Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and has dedicated most of his time for this great cause, we learnt, is happy about the charitable disposition of people who are committed to improving the lives of other people as Funke has well displayed. In the “This Close” campaign, she will raise her thumb and fore finger in the ad tagline “We’re this close to ending polio”
Rotary has formed an alliance with the likes of Bill Gates, Nobel Peace laureate Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, action movie star Jackie Chan and Pop star PSY to fight the childhood polio surge.
Funke said in her statement, “I feel so honored to be part of a charitable cause like this. I accepted this appointment because polio kills or paralyzes children and Rotary is committed to ending this terrible disease worldwide. I also learned that the world has never been so close to eradication of polio since the mid 80’s thanks to the vigorous efforts of Rotary International and its partners.”
