In particular, Kiwanis International's Eliminate Project with UNICEF aims to raise US$110 million by 2015 to change the world for millions of mothers and babies. This project will provide protection against neo-natal tetanus, a painful and deadly disease, causing extreme sensitivity to light, sound and contact—even preventing the comfort of a mother’s touch. STOP PRESS: 2017 was an incredibly successful year for MNT elimination. Ethiopia, Haiti and the Philippines are all MNT-free. Early in 2018, Kenya will undergo a validation survey, and plans move forward with immunization campaigns in Guinea and Nigeria — provided that funds are available. Let’s make 2018 just as successful as 2017! Spacer  Spacer Img Urgent funding needs In the next three months, health workers in Guinea will begin an immunization campaign to reach more than 3 million women. To be successful, the campaign requires US$1.5 million. Guinea faces several major challenges to MNT elimination—only 60 percent of pregnant women receive routine immunization. But UNICEF and Kiwanis are dedicated to this cause. Make a contribution today. As of November 30, 2017, The Eliminate Project has collected US$77,122,799 in cash gifts. Babies in 15 countries are still at risk of this excruciating disease and are relying on Kiwanis to fulfill our promise to eliminate MNT. Cash gifts ensure that UNICEF can carry out immunization campaigns. To learn more about ways you can give and the recognition you can receive, go to www.TheEliminateProject.org.
