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 49,000 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 will require $110 million.
If you would like to sponsor our event, or donate money to The Eliminate Project, please contace Alaa Malik at (504) 418-2335 or Gene Katsanis at (504) 289-0564. All donations are tax deductible and would be appreciated greatly.
