CASSADAGA - Kiwanis International's Project Eliminate was the topic of a recent presentation given by Gaylene Lindell, district chairperson for the Kiwanis drive to wipe out maternal neonatal tetanus.
Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal neonatal tetanus, a disease that kills almost 60,000 newborns and a significant number of mothers each year in Third World countries. To eliminate maternal neonatal tetanus, immunization is required. Vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation and skilled staff are needed. Kiwanis and UNICEF are working together to reach the poorest and most neglected mothers and babies.
Cassadaga Valley Kiwanis members agreed to pledge their support to this cause.
