Happy Monday, Everyone!
This Sunday will be the first day for handing out the coats that we have been collecting for the past few months.
We need volunteer help throughout the week. People choosing out coats will be assigned a ten minute window in order to limit congestion and make it easy for our volunteers. Volunteers are in charge of directing people to find coats in the sizes they require, and complete a simple form detailing what size coats were taken. It’s easy! Feel free to forward this email to people that may want to volunteer.
Thank you for all of your hard work!
Please respond to this email with what shift you can work. It can be done as an individual, a couple, or a team.

Polio Eradication Update:
Dear Polio Eradication Warriors,
No new Wild Polio cases reported this week.
What is that Polio Picture? Indonesia –
- One case of circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus type 2 (cVDPV2) was reported this week, with onset of paralysis on 9 October, from Aceh province. It is the first case reported from the country. Genetically-linked virus was also isolated from three healthy community contacts.
- A risk assessment and field investigation is currently ongoing by local and National public health authorities, and supported by partners of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, including to assess more clearly the origin of the isolated viruses. The Ministry of Health has publicly announced the outbreak, and catch-up immunization campaigns were launched in the immediately-affected area on 28 November, targeting 1.2 million children under the age of 13 years.
- Based on a detailed risk assessment, two large-scale vaccination campaigns are planned, one each in January and February 2023, covering four provinces (Aceh, North Sumatera, Riau and West Sumatera), targeting 3.7 million children.
