Save a Life Campaign

 

In 2010, UNICEF asked Kiwanis International to partner with them to Eliminate worldwide Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus or MNT. At the time, this disease was killing one baby every 11 minutes, or 49,000 babies each year. If a mother contracts tetanus while pregnant, her baby will be born with the disease and die an excruciating death. It only takes $1.80 to immunize a woman and educate her on safe birthing practices.

 

UNICEF estimated it would take $210 million to eliminate MNT worldwide. It raised $100 through grants and asked Kiwanis if it would raise the remaining $110 million. Kiwanis pledged to do so. The Kiwanians of Safety Harbor raised over $30,000 to save 17,000 lives.  So far, Kiwanis and UNICEF have eliminated MNT in 39 of 51 countries plagued by the disease.
