Sierra Madre Kiwanis Joins UNICEF In Fighting Maternal & Neonatal Tetanus (MNT)
Sierra Madre Kiwanis joins UNICEF fights Maternal & Neonatal Tetanus (MNT). Our club will always be leading our community in giving where the need is greatest. Join us in the drive to end tetanus from the planet.
This year when the kids Trick or Treat for UNICEF remember what the money is going for and give like it was your child experiencing Tetanus.
Sierra Madre Kiwanis joins UNICEF, Kiwanis International and The Eliminate Project
UNICEF,The Eliminate Project, Sierra Madre Kiwanis and Kiwanis International joins the neonatal tetanus fight this Halloween. Join us in our effort to end maternal/neonatal tetanus.
We did it! We reached our fundraising goal, raising US$110 million in cash and pledges since 2010. However, our job is not done yet.
Now, more than ever, we are determined to finish what we started. Mothers and babies in 16 countries are depending on Kiwanis. They’re waiting for us to fulfill our pledges—so we can turn promises into funding; funding into vaccines; and vaccines into lives saved and futures protected. The end of this disease means the beginning of better health for so many of these families.
Through The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to end maternal and neonatal tetanus—a deadly disease that steals the lives of 34,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year.
Kiwanis offers a special thank you to our dedicated campaign volunteers and donors for their passionate and generous efforts to save and protect mothers and babies.
Kiwanis International selected UNICEF as the recipient of the 2017 World Service Medal, the highest honor Kiwanis International can give. The honor, which included a $50,000 US grant from the Kiwanis Children’s Fund, was given to UNICEF during the 2017 Kiwanis International Convention in Paris.
