ABOUT THE ELIMINATE PROJECT

Every 15 minutes, a newborn baby dies from tetanus. That short lifetime is marked by pain — with an extreme sensitivity to light, sound or contact that prevents even a mother's touch.

But it doesn't have to be this way. In 2010, the Kiwanis family partnered with UNICEF to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) through a joint effort called The Eliminate Project. As of July 30, 2018, The Eliminate Project has raised more than US$82 million to save and protect mothers and babies.

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is an easy — and fun — way for the Kiwanis family to raise money for The Eliminate Project to save and protect moms and babies.

Since the project began in 2010, we've helped eliminate MNT in 25 countries. Every year, 24,000 more babies are born unaffected by tetanus. And millions of mothers have been vaccinated.

But the fight is not over. Mothers and babies in 14 countries are still at risk of this deadly, preventable disease.

You and your club can help us finish the fight. This Halloween, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF to save and protect lives.
