Fewer babies dying from tetanus
The Kiwanis family’s efforts through The Eliminate Project are
making a big difference. The number of babies dying from neonatal tetanus
dropped 15 percent between 2010 and 2013, according
to a new report by the Child Health Epidemiology Reference Group. One baby now dies every 11
minutes—with approximately 9,000 fewer
babies dying each year. But 134 newborns still die every day.
Find out Kiwanis’ latest fundraising totals during the next
Worldwide Report Day on November 12, 2014, when we’ll showcase our progress at http://sites.kiwanis.org/Kiwanis/en/theELIMINATEproject/Progress/WorldwideReportDay.aspx.
We’re on the verge of turning a global effort into a worldwide achievement with
the strides we’re making toward our US$110 million goal. Help keep the momentum
