Supporting communities

As a company, we have a responsibility to give back to those in need.

The power of clean water

In a world where nearly a billion people struggle with access to clean drinking water, our Children's Safe Drinking Water (CSDW) Program provides clean water to those in need. Our P&G Purifier of Water packets act as a water treatment plant - all in a 4-gram packet.

Each P&G water purification packet treats 10 liters of water by effectively eliminating bacteria, viruses, parasites, and solid materials. In just 30 minutes, a family of five can have clean drinking water for an entire day.

We achieved our 2020 goal a year early by delivering our 15 billionth liter of water in 2019. We set a new goal to deliver 25 billion liters by 2025.

Pampers is dedicated to the happy, healthy development of babies. It inspired us to create a diaper for the most vulnerable babies - as tiny as 800 grams. In Hong Kong, we worked with the Council of Early Childhood Education & Services to provide preemie diapers to families and offer professional consultation services to ease the stress that many experience in caring for a preemie infant. To date, more than 200,000 preemie diapers have been donated.
In Taiwan, we partnered with five hospitals and donated more than 70,000 Pampers diapers to support preemie babies and their families.
