Rotary condemns attacks targeting health workers in Nigeria
Here is a statement from Rotary Foundation Trustee Chair Wilfrid J. Wilkinson concerning the attacks on health workers in Nigeria:
Rotary International joins the Government of Nigeria and our partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative in condemning recent attacks in Kano, Nigeria, that have killed and injured health workers.
We express our sympathy to the families affected, and thank all health workers for their heroic efforts to deliver vital health interventions to children the world over.
Rotary members in Nigeria -- and worldwide -- remain committed to supporting the people of Nigeria and the fight to end polio forever.
