Kiwanis engaged in its first Worldwide Service Project teaming up with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to virtually eliminate iodine deficiency disorders. These disorders cause various degrees of mental and physical impairment in the fetus and in young children. At this time, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus called Project Eliminate. 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.
