The Kiwanis Club of Hagerstown will join Kiwanis International to "Eliminate" maternal/neonatal tetanus. The projected goal of Kiwanis International is to raise $110,000,000 by 2015.
Poor hygiene and lack of health care education promote tetanus, especially during birth. Without treatment, an infected newborn dies within days.
The Kiwanis Club of Hagerstown will provide annual support for Project Eliminate through 2015.
Anyone interested in joining with Kiwanis Club members can contact John Roney at 301-331-0064 or
