Women are critical in the fight against polio. From reaching every child with polio vaccines to ensuring their children receive the protection they deserve, women are at the heart of polio eradication efforts.
Courageous Pakistani mothers, like polio survivor Saima, are key to ending polio’s paralysing effects on children for good – not just in Pakistan, but all over the world.
This is not the first time Saima Liaqat has shown her courage.
Stricken by polio at age two, Saima was partially paralysed. Yet already, as a girl, she refused to let the disease get the best of her. She limped down the long dusty road to school so often, and studied so hard, that she became the first woman in her family to go to college.
