Give the most important gift of all

Happy holidays from The Eliminate Project!

Whether you are still looking for the perfect holiday gift or simply wanting to make an impact before the end of the year, consider a gift that protects the connection between a mother and her child.

Women like Ajok in South Sudan. Ajok has given birth seven times, but only three of her children are alive. Each time Ajok gave birth she was at home—a small hut—by herself. Before giving birth, she would place a blanket down on the floor. Once the baby arrived she would cut the umbilical cord herself with a razor blade.

Reaching women like Ajok in remote communities is vital to eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus. A series of three vaccine doses—along with knowledge of healthy birthing practices and postnatal care—helps save lives. Those are the very things you help provide when you give to The Eliminate Project.

Extend your impact in 2015. This holiday season, honor a loved one, fellow Kiwanis member or business associate with a gift to save lives.

Reminder: Gifts must be received or postmarked by December 31, 2015 to be eligible for 2015 tax benefits.
