We just received word from the Government of India that they are planning to hold a polio National Immunization Day (NID) January 19, 2020.  We will be organizing a group program to Delhi and Uttar Pradesh to participate in the NID and house-to-house activities.  This will be the 32nd such trip we have organized to take North American Rotarians to participate in a polio NID.
Frequently, we hear the comment, “I would like to participate in an NID, but I don’t know how to find out about these trips.”  You now have the information to share with your Rotarians.
 
Along with participation in the polio immunization activities, we will meet with the World Health Organization and local Rotary clubs in Delhi and Jaipur.  We will also take a couple of days to travel to Agra to see the Taj Mahal and Jaipur to see the Pink City.
 
Tentatively, our group will depart on Friday, 10 January from North America and return on January 21, 2020.  We are working with the Indian Rotary leadership to finalize the itinerary, Rotary programs and accommodations.  We hope to have specific information available the week of October 28, 2019, if not earlier.  You will receive the material as soon as it is available.
 
We are sending you this message so you are aware that an NID will be held in 2020 in India, and we will be organizing a program.  Please share this information with others in your club and in your district.  We will have a limit as to how many people we can take, and typically, these trips sell out in a week or two.  Please tell any interested Rotarians to send us an email so we can add them to our database to ensure they are among the first to receive a notice when the itinerary is finalized.
 
Please let us know if you have any questions.
