A National Immunization Day is where a team of Rotarians head to an area in masses to inoculate the children in order to help eradicate polio.  For more information on Rotary's plight to End Polio Now, please visit

Day 1:  Kerstin & Team arrived safely in Nigeria.

Day 2:  Kerstin reported that the team painted 2 class rooms to 50%.  She said they could not do more because they were missing paint brushes and paint. The Rotary Club of Kaduna promised to finish the 2 class rooms. Kerstin stated "You should have seen the faces of the kids when they were handed just 1 pencil. The poverty here is heartbreaking." Tomorrow morning they leave the hotel at 6 AM for their first round of immunization.
