Urban Initiatives wishes to congratulate long-time supporter FC Barcelona on their historic partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to completely eradicate polio!
Bill Gates wrote in a recent post announcing the partnership,
We hope that together we can bring more global attention to the promise of lifesaving vaccines and the fight to end polio. FC Barcelona has a long history of being involved in social causes and an enormous global network of fans. We hope that once they learn more about the fight against polio, they’ll be just as fanatical about finishing it as they are about Leo Messi.
Urban Initiatives is inspired by the More Than a Goal campaign and cannot wait to celebrate once this global health milestone is reached! FC Barcelona proves yet again that they truly live out their motto, "More than a club!"
