Reviews for Kiwanis International Foundation, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

The Kiwnais International Foundation's mission is to serve the children of the world. Kiwanis International Foundation has done far more than that over the years by actually saving lives and by changing the world in so doing. The Foundation raised over 100 million dollars to eradicate Iodine Deficiency Disorder (IDD) around the world. IDD caused physical deformities and severe mental deficiencies translating into the births of millions of individuals who were unable to care for themselves and who then became burdens on society. By succesfully eradicating IDD around the world Kiwanis International Foundation in partnership with UNICEF changed the course of history. Individuals who might have been born in need of society's help were instead born with the ability to provide for themselves and their communites and families.
