Beninoise Singer-Songwriter Urges African Mothers To Vaccinate Children Against Polio

Al Jazeera: War on polio: A call to African mothers
Angelique Kidjo, Beninoise singer-songwriter, activist, Rotary polio ambassador, and founder of Batonga Foundation

“…I urge every African mother: Be sure to have your children vaccinated against polio, for that is the only way we can wipe out the disease permanently. When all of the world’s children have been vaccinated, polio will have nowhere to go, other than to the history books, where it will join smallpox as the only human diseases to be totally vanquished…” (6/24).
