Eliminate Maternal Neonatal Tetanus
|Kiwanis International ELIMINATE Regional Coordinator (Canada and the Caribbean), Chuck McIlravey, met with Kiwanis International President, Dr. John Button, UNICEF of Canada CEO, David Morley, Prime Minister Steven Harper and Bill Gates.|
All Kiwanians are thrilled with our Government of Canada’s decision to donate up to $2.5 Million in matching funds to our global service project: ELIMINATE.
Beginning February 1, 2015 (and continuing for the next 2 years), all money raised for our ELIMINATE project, and sent to our Kiwanis Foundation of Canada, will be matched by the Government of Canada up to $2.5 Million!
This donation, from the Government of Canada, puts us closer to realizing our goal of eliminating maternal neonatal tetanus in the world. It helps save the lives of countless babies. It helps improve the world one child at a time.
Kiwanians, the world over, appreciate this donation and extend our heartfelt thanks to the Canadian Government for showing that they truly care.
