An incredible  Nigerian experience. In Abuja District 6400, Windsor Roseland and other clubs donated milk, noodles and cookies to the displaced camps of people who lost their homes to the insurgence of Boko Haram. The Polio teams visit regularly and work with them.
The experience has been sad, exhilarating, tiring and satisfying! Thank you to everyone who supports us in our Polio journey!!
