Warid Awareness on National Polio Immunization Drive

Warid Telecom, in its efforts to make Pakistan “Polio Free” has joined the awareness campaign to fight aggressively against Polio. With an ambition to eradicate polio from Pakistan the Rotary Club members in Pakistan have started with National Polio Immunization Drive all over the country from 12th to 14th October, 2009. President of Pakistan has inaugurated the Polio NID at President House and the volunteers would go to every home to give the children Polio drops. Nearly 35 million children under 5 years of age are expected to be immunized in the 3 days campaign.

Warid has broadcasted an awareness SMS notifying its subscribers on the national immunization effort. It also includes the Rotary Team helpline number i.e. 0800-76546 incase if Rotary team has not reached their place. Rotary is actively involved in eradicating Polio from the world. The entire world is free from polio except four countries which also includes Pakistan. Warid is doing its part with an earnest desire that soon our country will become Polio free.
