Serving the Children of the World
The Eliminate Project and Akron Kiwanis

Every nine minutes, an infant dies from neonatal tetanus. That short lifetime is marked by pain, robbing a mother of the chance to provide even the comfort of her touch. Most of these tragedies occur in countries that haven't yet eliminated maternal and neonatal tetanus.

With The Eliminate Project: Kiwanis eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus, Kiwanis International has joined forces with UNICEF to change the world for millions of mothers and babies. Three countries have recently eliminated tetanus: China, East Timor and Tanzania. Won’t you help us continue the work and help many more? (See below!)
