Intervention can be vital in polio fight

The British Polio Fellowship is keen to praise the important work carried out by David Beckham in the ongoing fight against polio.

His profile has highlighted the plight of children living with polio and I am inviting him to become an ambassador for those living with Post Polio Syndrome (PPS) in the UK today.

David used funding from a series of football matches he arranged to help vaccinate children in the Ali Addeh refugee camp in Djibouti.

This kind of personal intervention can make all the difference and we would be delighted to welcome David as a member of the team.
