The Rotary Club of Sulmaniya organized a multi-stage polio day awareness project. It involves members' social media accounts, the Rotary Sulmaniya social media accounts, inviting a guest speaker to talk about polio during our lunch meeting and finally an awareness campaign walk in Avenues mall in Bahrain.
