British actress Archie Panjabi helped immunise children against polio during a charity trip to India earlier this year (13).

The Good Wife star is a longtime supporter of the Rotary International organisation's campaign against the disease, and she took time out of her busy schedule to visit New Delhi to witness how the charity helps locals.

Panjabi teamed up with volunteers to immunise youngsters against polio and also met patients at a hospital.

She says, "I visited a health clinic, where I met parents who brought their babies, siblings who brought their little brothers and sisters - all to receive the oral polio vaccine. I placed drops of vaccine into a child's mouth, and I was so moved... knowing that this child was now safe from this devastating disease forever.

"Seeing India become polio-free is tremendous, and I am committed to making sure that no other child anywhere suffers from polio again."

Panjabi also reveals the cause is close to her heart because of time she spent in India as a child.

She adds, "I grew up in London and at the age of 10, I moved to Mumbai for two years. One of the things that struck me on my daily walk to school was seeing polio survivors crawling on the streets using just their hands."
