Impact 350

Moutchama Saint Fleur is not happy about getting a shot. Through cries of despair and eventually tears of relief, she received her vaccination. In that instant—in the prick of a needle—this worried 12-year-old girl took the first step in protecting herself and her future babies from maternal and neonatal tetanus. Through her decision to be immunized, her country, Haiti, moves that much closer to eliminating a major cause of neonatal mortality.

With governments and partners, UNICEF has established an action plan. Your gift will support:

  • Immunization of women of reproductive age. The vaccines will be administered through three properly spaced rounds of supplemental immunization activities in districts where mothers and newborns have limited access to prenatal care, immunization and skilled birth attendants.
  • Promotion of clean delivery practices. The number of safe and healthy births will increase.
  • Immunization of pregnant women. The tetanus toxoid or tetanus and diphtheria vaccine will be promoted as part of a package of interventions delivered during prenatal care visits or through outreach services.
  • Sustainability through education. Funds will help maintain educational initiatives such as clean birthing practices established during The Eliminate Project.
  • Kiwanian education and organizational enhancement. A small portion of funds raised will help educate the Kiwanis family on maternal and neonatal issues and help create Kiwanis-family service projects that support The Eliminate Project.
