Let's EradiCARE- Launch of the Polio Survivors Fund webinar

When:   -
Timezone: UTC+01:00

The Polio Survivors Fund is conducting its first webinar on "Let's EradiCARE" on December 3rd, 2020. 

 

Organizer: Polio Survivors Fund 

 

Event description: 

The aim of the Polio Survivors Fund is to provide support to children/families who are now still affected by the disease, particularly in previously polio-free areas which have become re-infected or where the disease has re-emerged, and where infrastructure to provide support to survivors is suboptimal.

As such, the Fund will provide tailored support, on a case-by-case basis, to children and their families, including as relevant: wheelchairs and prosthetics, physiotherapy, social and vocational support, education support, transportation support, or even simply basic financial support.

Join the official launch webinar on December 3rd, 2020.
