Rotary International annouces $35million to tackle polio in 5 African countries

Rotary announces $35 million in grants to support the global effort to end polio, including $15 million to support polio eradication efforts in 5 African countries.

In 2015, Africa proved a hub of historic progress against the paralyzing disease. Nigeria – the last polio-endemic country in Africa – was removed from the World Health Organization’s list of endemic countries in September, following one year without a new case of the wild virus. The last wild polio case on the African continent was in August 2014.

 “We are closer than ever to achieving a polio-free world,” said Michael K. McGovern, chair of Rotary’s International PolioPlus Committee.  “To ensure that no child ever again suffers the devastating effects of this disease, we must all ensure that the necessary funds and political will are firmly in place in 2016.”  

Today, just two countries – Afghanistan and Pakistan – are reporting a single strain of the wild virus.

Church of England leaders vote to condemn same-sex marriage

The Church of England has voted to condemn same-sex marriage and has even condemned the Anglican church in the US for officially recognising it.

After all 37 Primates from around the world met in Canterbury, they issued a statement saying that, according to traditional doctrine, marriage should be between “a man and a woman in faithful, lifelong union”.

The liberal clergy are upset about this statement and even a prominent supporter of gay marriage said he was “thoroughly ashamed to be Anglican” because of the decision.

This issue has divided the Church, with conservatives and many Anglicans in African countries opposed to same-sex weddings, while liberals and the Episcopal Church in the US support them.
