We have a long-standing history of giving back to the communities where we live and work.
Whether it’s providing basic essentials for families displaced by disaster or supporting hygiene education, we aim to improve the health and well-being of all the communities we touch. We have two focus areas for our community impact work—Health and Hygiene and the Comforts of Home.
P&G and our brands are delivering programs that promote healthy behaviors that can prevent illness and improve confidence for people in need. With hand washing, tooth brushing and personal hygiene instruction combined with improved access to sanitation facilities, children and teens learn the value of healthy hygiene habits and the positive results in adopting healthy behaviors. A number of our beauty care brands have programs that provide their brand benefits to promote health and confidence.
Below are some of our Health and Hygiene programs:
The P&G Children's Safe Drinking Water Program (CSDW) uses an innovation that P&G created to transform potentially deadly water into clean, drinkable water. To date, the program has been implemented in more than 75 countries and has committed to delivering 15 billion liters of clean drinking water by 2020.
Pampers Vaccination Program
Pampers and UNICEF are working to vaccinate women and children around the world from maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT). The program has reached consumers across Europe, resulting in the elimination of MNT from 15 countries through more than 300 million vaccine donations.
P&G is providing everyday essentials that help create the experience of home for families who can't afford them or who have been displaced. We leverage the strength of partner organizations to deliver programs which help address both short-term and long-term housing-related issues including those associated with sanitation and water. Our employees team up as volunteers to build, clean and repair homes in virtually every region where P&G conducts business. They also come together to assemble kits of personal hygiene and/or home care products which are readied for delivery in immediate response to disaster impacted areas.
Here are a few of our Comforts of Home programs;
Our commitment to support victims after widespread disasters is a natural expression of our Purpose to improve lives. Our response is anchored in product donations and in the event of large-scale disasters, we have developed mobile relief units to provide products and services directly to those in the most highly impacted areas. From our soap and personal hygiene products to our laundry, diaper and cleaning products, our brands can help restore a sense of normalcy to the disrupted lives of those caught in the aftermath of a disaster.
Habitat for Humanity International
P&G has partnered with Habitat for Humanity in their efforts to provide decent, safe and affordable places to live for families in need by sponsoring home builds around the world. Thousands of our employees come together to help build and clean homes for first-time owners committed to provide a home for their families. We also provide P&G products through gift baskets to first time owners along with education on how to care for their home.
