About Us

The Seaway Kiwanis Club of Sarnia-Lambton is a service club that serves to improve our local communities, and most importantly, the lives of children in Sarnia-Lambton area and across the world.

Many of our members are leaders in the business community, professionals, and retirees who have volunteered to join  Seaway Kiwanis to make contributions to the lives of others throughout Sarnia-Lambton. Our club offers an excellent forum for fellowship, networking, and meeting lifelong friends.

The Eliminate Project: A Global Initiative

With The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 60,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. The effects of the disease are excruciating — tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch.

To eliminate MNT from the Earth, more than 100 million mothers and their future babies must be immunized. This requires vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation, thousands of skilled staff and more. It will take US$110 million — and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family.
