Kiwanis Brighton has a particular focus on sick and "at risk" children and youth. Our main projects involve support for HeartKids Victoria, the provision of "trauma Bags" for the Monash Medical Centre Paediatric Unit, the supply of Hygiene Kits for homeless youth (via Southern Directions Youth Services and Open Family). We also support MS Australia 24 Hour Mega Swim, Gordon Care, Foundation House, Red Cross and other organizations in addition to involvement in some specific Kiwanis programs.
By 2015 Kiwanis clubs around the world will have raised $115,000,000 to eliminate maternal and neo-natal tetanus from the 39 countries where this disease is still a major health problem. The disease kills a baby every 9 minutes. See: www.TheEliminateProject.org
