Milbank Kiwanis Club and Project Eliminate

With The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 60,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. The effects of the disease are excruciating - tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch.

To eliminate MNT from the Earth, more than 100 million mothers and their future babies must be immunized. This requires vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation, thousands of skilled staff and more. It will take $110 million - and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family. 

Kiwanis and UNICEF joined forces to take iodine deficiency disorders, acheiving one the most significant public health successes of the 20th century. Now, they are eliminating MNT from the face of the Earth. And in doing so, the project will reach the poorest, most neglected mothers and balies with additional lifesaving health care. The end of this one disease means the beginning of better health for so many families.
