Eliminate Project

 

What if you woke up every morning knowing you had helped save a baby from a painful, deadly disease? The Eliminate Project gives everyone a chance to be a hero--by saving lives from maternal and neonatal tetanus.
 
Here's how: With one gift, you can be that hero. Just $1.80 can save a baby from maternal and neonatal tetanus. Think of what you buy every day—a cup of coffee or a snack—and think of what would happen if you committed instead to saving a life every day.

Save a baby a day for 1 year

Save a baby a day for 2 years

Make your commitment

 

Please put Kiwanis Club of Dawson County as the "Kiwanis-family organization to credit as the donor of this gift"

 

The Eliminate Project

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 US$110 million — and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family.

Kiwanis and UNICEF joined forces to tackle iodine deficiency disorders, achieving one of 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 babies with additional lifesaving health care. The end of this one disease means the beginning of better health for so many families.
