Over the last two years, the Kiwanis Club of Carbonear has raised and donated $25,000 to provide tetanus vaccinations in third world countries.

This is part of a Kiwanis International’s partnership with the World Health Organization and UNICEF, with Kiwanis International having pledged $110 million to the cause.

In recognition of its good work, the local club was recently awarded model club status, with several members also receiving Walter Zeller Medals.
