Kiwanis and UNICEF have joined together to eliminate the deadly, but highly preventable, maternal and neonatal tetanus disease. The Kiwanis Club of LBI has been officially recognized as a model club by Kiwanis International. We had pledged to raise $30,000 a few years ago. We are pleased to report that the pledge has been fulfilled to help acquire the necessary supplies, skilled staff, equipment and transportation to reach mothers and babies in remote areas with little or no access to health care.
Kiwanis of LBI participates each year in the Kiwanis International Signature project. The needs of children and families in our community are evaluated then we design a service project, such as reading programs, school supplies, safety programs, etc. to meet those needs.
