The Carolinas District & the Eliminate Project
Thanks to Kiwanis International’s partnership with UNICEF, The Eliminate Project is eradicating Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus, or MNT, from the earth. The fatal disease is contracted from unsterile medical tools and surrounding conditions during birth. It causes extreme pain, sensitivity, and convulsions for newborns, and can be deadly for mothers as well. On average, one baby dies every nine minutes from this terrible disease. That’s 60,000 babies every year, all lives that could be saved.
The Carolina District of Key Club is making an incredible impact on this important project. This year, the following clubs have contributed more than $250 each to Eliminate. Thank you to them and to all Key Clubbers promoting and supporting our fight against such a terrible disease!
