With The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 60,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. The effects of the disease are excruciating - tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch.
To eliminate MNT from the Earth, more than 100 million mothers and their future babies must be immunized. This requires vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation, thousands of skilled staff and more. It will take $110 million — and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family.
Members of the West Seattle Kiwanis has pledged support for more than 600 vaccines and will be collecting contributions at the West Seattle Farmers Market to help them get closer to the goal to eliminate maternal/neonatal tetanus.

There are few events more joyful than the day a new baby is welcomed to the world. But in 38 countries, a dreaded disease quickly turns that joy into tragedy.
In honor of mother’s around the world, the West Seattle Kiwanis invites all community members to celebrate their mother’s love by contributing to The Eliminate Project.
Please consider sponsoring one or more tetanus vaccines.
Stop by the Kiwanis tent at the West Seattle Farmers Market on Sundays or make a contribution via our PayPal account.
