Kiwanis International's global initiative to
Eliminate Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus worldwide
- We don't hear much about tetanus in the USA today, but
- Every 8 minutes around the world a baby dies in excruciating pain
- We have the vaccine to prevent it
- Just $1.80 can save the life of a woman and her future children!
The members of Kiwanis clubs across the globe are striving to raise the $110 million needed to eliminate this deadly and horribly painful disease. The vaccination is inexpensive, but getting it to women in far-flung regions of third-world countries is costly and why we have partnered with UNICEF.
