Eradication of Polio is just Two Drops Away!

Since 2005 I have traveled to Ethiopia working toward the eradication of polio by vaccinating one child at a time with the polio oral vaccine. Just think one child at a time saved from a life of paralysis. It is important for me to personally give of myself. It's my time in life to get the message out that this crippling disease still exists today. The children in the world who still suffer from polio along with prevention and rehabilitation are the purpose of my Foundation. The eradication of polio is my passion. Traveling to Africa and other third world countries to improve the life of those affected is my mission.

As a child I had polio and I'm often asked how my life was impacted. That is a difficult question for me because I didn't let it have a negative impact on my life. However, the truth of the matter is that it had a minimal impact on my life because I was fortunate enough to be born in the United States. I was given excellent care by family orthopedic surgeons and provided funding for surgeries by donations from organizations such as the March of Dimes and Orthopedic Guilds. My mother was a single mom with limited funds for raising myself and two brothers. It is now time for me to give back.

I have been traveling with Rotary International, World Vision and the World Health organization with the goal of immunizing every child in Ethiopia. These trips have proven to be extremely rewarding and the most heart wrenching experiences of my life. If you have ever thought of humanitarian work and have the means, I would recommend getting involved in a program such as Rotary, World Vision or World Health. It has changed my life. My experience has driven me to form my Foundation and I ask for your help.

The Denny Wilford Foundation is working toward the prevention and elimination of polio worldwide along with the ongoing rehabilitation of polio sufferers. At this time, my focus is in Ethiopia where there are hundreds of thousands of people still affected by this disabling disease, limited to a life of crawling and begging.

My logo, Just 2 Drops, depicts the two drops of polio vaccine that it takes to prevent one child from contracting polio. Just 2 Drops, one child at a time and we will eradicate polio from the world.
