Every 17 minutes, a newborn baby dies from tetanus. It is excruciating, and parents can only watch. The baby’s sensitivity to light, sound and contact prevents even the comfort of a mother’s touch. You can help protect that connection.

Since 2010, Key Club members have teamed up with the entire Kiwanis family and UNICEF to help save and protect women and their future babies from tetanus with The Eliminate Project.

Through The Eliminate Project, the Kiwanis family is changing the world. To date, we have helped save and protect lives by eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) in 27 countries.

This year, Key Club International is projecting to raise US$700,000 as part of Key Club’s US$3 million pledge to The Eliminate Project. You can help meet that goal by participating in The Eliminate Project Week from May 6 to May 10. Let’s help finish the fight against tetanus and protect mothers and babies from this deadly, but preventable disease!
