The Kiwanis Club of San Carlos is joining forces with Kiwanis members across the globe to raise $110 million by 2015. Our Global Campaign for Children is called The Eliminate Project: Kiwanis eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT), and it will save or protect millions of women and their future babies who are at risk of MNT in more than 50 countries. The funding will support UNICEF and its partners in their efforts to eliminate MNT from the planet.
Each day about 160 newborns die from tetanus, a painful disease that causes excruciating convulsions and is contracted during unhygienic childbirth practices. Tetanus is a highly preventable disease that has virtually disappeared from the industrialized world, but it continues to affect mothers and their babies in developing countries. The Kiwanis Club of San Carlos wants to help.
