Our service goals for this year include the Eliminate Project, which will help to eliminate MNT in third-world countries. MNT is maternal neonatal tetanus. This is a disease that a mother passes down to her child during childbirth. The baby then painfully suffers and dies within a few hours. They don’t even get to feel their mother’s touch. What we are hoping to do is eliminate this disease from 32 countries. We have already successfully eliminated it from 14 countries. In order to eliminate it the mother must go through a series of three shots that cost $0.60 each, adding up to $1.80 per mother. For more information and a video go to our website at http:// rhs.njkeyclub.org/. We will be selling Eliminate hands for $1 each for a month. Please try your hardest to sell as many as you can to save the lives of many mothers and their babies.
