U.S. Fund for UNICEF presents Extraordinary Women Putting Children First

As part of its Extraordinary Women Putting Children First event series, the Southeast Region of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF presented an evening with Carrie Rhodes, a volunteer leader of The Eliminate Project — a joint initiative with Kiwanis International — to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) around the globe.

The event took place on Wednesday, May 6th, 2015 at Capital City Club at Brookhaven, and was a very inspirational evening for women who are interested in making a difference for the world's most vulnerable children.
