THE ELIMINATE PROJECT
Through the Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus – a deadly disease that steals the lives of 34,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. Our fundraising goal of raising $110 million in cash and pledges was reached in 2010! Mothers and babies in 18 countries are depending on Kiwanis transforming promises into funding then vaccines and into saving lives and protecting future lives. Of the 39 countries in 2010 that had tetanus, only 18 countries remain at risk. 21 countries are now free from this horrible, unnecessary disease!
