Enchanted Holidays Polio Appeal
About the disease
Poliomyelitis (Polio) is a highly infectious viral disease, which mainly affects young children. The virus is transmitted, person-to-person, mainly through the faecal-oral route or, less frequently, by a common vehicle (e.g. contaminated water or food) and multiplies in the intestine, from where it can invade the nervous system and can cause paralysis.
Initial symptoms of polio include fever, fatigue, headache, vomiting, stiffness in the neck, and pain in the limbs. In a small proportion of cases, the disease causes paralysis, which is often permanent. There is no cure for polio. It can only be prevented by immunisation.
How can you help?
Well, it’s easier than you think.

For each ski pass we receive, we will donate €5.00 through Rotary International, directly to those who need the anti-virus. Every ski pass received will pay for at least 2 children to be immunised, before this crippling disease can take effect.
