When international cooperation works

 |  NCR Today

This weekend witnessed a beautiful example of what can happen when international cooperation works well. Millions of people benefit.

I heard it on a BBC broadcast:

Take a look inside our August 29 edition. Watch now.

A campaign has been launched to eradicate polio in west and central Africa, targeting 85 million children.

Some 400,000 health workers and volunteers will go from door-to-door in 19 countries, giving oral polio vaccine to children under the age of five.

This particular report did not mention how Catholic groups, dioceses and parishes were involved, but you can just about bet they were. Anyone know about Catholic participation in these program?
