Have you heard about Kiwanis International’s next global campaign for children?
The Eliminate Project: Kiwanis eliminating maternal/neonatal tetanus will eliminate MNT, a disease that kills one baby every nine minutes. In partnership with UNICEF, we are targeting the poorest, most under served women and children in the world, and paving the way for other interventions that will boost maternal health and child survival. Hand-in-hand, Kiwanis and UNICEF will once again change the world.

Kiwanis raised more than US$100 million, which today is at work in more than 103 nations. The number of households estimated to be consuming iodized salt has jumped from 20 percent in 1990 to more than 70 percent, and the effort has been heralded as one of the most successful health initiatives in the world.
Help us build on this success! Today we need every Kiwanian to prepare for the road ahead:
