Carl Linge and Steve Page gave us an up-date on Kiwanis’ Eliminate project. For new GRKiwanians, this is a 5 year project in which Kiwanis committed to end maternal neo-natal
tetanus. The newborn with tetanus suffers terribly. A series of 3 innoculations, costing $1.80, prevents this for all future births. Kiwanis pledged to raise $110 million to fund this, with UNICEF providing the delivery of the vaccine. To date, $100 million has been raised, but the 5 years is up at the end of this year. GRKiwanians have been very generous! The initial goal was $82,500—the current total raised is $167,000!! This equates to saving 93,000 lives and puts us in the top 50 of 7700 clubs worldwide. We’d love to have 100% participation, so if you can give as little as $5, see Carl or Steve soon. In providing his inspiration for this project, Carl quoted Proverbs 19:17: “Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and He will reward them for what they have done.”
