“For generations, we’ve stepped up to ensure we are serving consumers, supporting employees and helping the communities in which we live and work through unexpected challenges by providing the brands people count on to take care of their daily cleaning, health and hygiene needs.
Our brands help bring a sense of normalcy in uncertain times and are uniquely positioned to help people, especially those in underserved communities who are disproportionately impacted in times of crisis. Being a good corporate citizen is core to who we are as a Company. It remains a priority now and in the future, as we are committed to improve the lives of people around the world, each and every day.”
Access to Clean
Around the world, nearly a billion people struggle each day to have clean drinking water, often as a result of natural disasters. Through our Children’s Safe Drinking Water (CSDW) Program, we have been providing clean drinking water to communities with P&G’s innovative Purifier of Water packets. Working in collaboration with more than 150 global advocacy and implementing partners, we have reached our latest milestone — delivering 20 billion liters of clean drinking water to children and families without safe drinking water in over 90 countries.

United is the Way
William Cooper Procter, grandson of P&G’s founder, is often credited with being the original driving force behind P&G’s long-standing support of the United Way. The United Way has been part of our corporate culture for over 80 years. Today, P&G is consistently one of the largest contributors to the non-profit’s annual fundraising campaign in Greater Cincinnati and many more communities where P&G people live and work across the Americas. We’ve stepped up to help our hometown community by donating more than $10 million to the United Way of Greater Cincinnati campaign.
Building Home and Hope
Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. This year, P&G proudly partnered on programs to advance health and hygiene and gender equality, including:
- Improving water and sanitation conditions for families in Argentina
- Supporting older women and victims of domestic abuse by refurbishing a women’s refuge in the United Kingdom
- Providing access to hygiene and sanitation facilities for school children to reduce absenteeism in Kenya
For generations, P&G and our brands have united to support consumers and communities through unexpected challenges, emergencies and in times of need. In the past year, P&G has responded to more than 30 disasters across the globe with financial support, products and services to meet these unexpected needs. Learn more.
During times of disasters, we’re continuing to provide ongoing support across the globe, guided by three core principles:
Supporting Ukrainian Families
Millions of people have been affected by the war in Ukraine, a majority of them women and children. Since the beginning, P&G has mobilized resources around the world to support employees, families and relief organizations in a variety of ways:
- Provided millions of everyday essentials, including diapers, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and other cleaning, health and hygiene products to people displaced from their homes
- Established a matching fund drive which was supported by thousands of P&G employees in more than 40 countries
- Provided financial support to relief partners in their efforts to provide access to clean water, food, shelter, and health and care services in Ukraine and neighboring countries. Some of our partners include:
“Our P&G colleagues in Central Europe have stepped up in so many ways since the earliest days of this crisis — providing transportation from the border, opening their homes to provide safe places to sleep and caring about the personal needs of those displaced. I’m so proud how we immediately helped, while simultaneously working to safely resume our operations and continue serving people across the region who depend on our products every day.”
Responding to a Global Pandemic
We have offered diverse tools and flexible policies to our employees to help manage the challenges of working and living during a pandemic, including a focus on mental wellness. Our efforts to step up as a force for good for consumers have continued:
We provided donations of Safeguard, Crest, Whisper, Head & Shoulders and Pampers products to support the epidemic prevention and control work in Shanghai and Guangxi.
We sponsored the Por Um Sorriso (For a Smile) program in Brazil, bringing oral care services to vulnerable communities when access to the dentist became difficult during the extended challenges of the pandemic.
