P&G delivers 5 billionth liter of clean drinking water
CINCINNATI — Procter & Gamble has delivered its 5 billionth liter of clean drinking water through its charitable program.
P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water program — which began providing clean drinking water in developing countries through its P&G Purifier of Water technology nearly a decade ago — has saved an estimated 26,000 lives, as well as prevented more than 200 million days of illness. The 5 billionth liter was delivered in Malawi through a partnership with the University of North Carolina. The milestone also marks progress toward P&G’s commitment to scale up efforts to share clean water and save one life every hour by 2020 by providing 2 billion liters of clean water every year.
"We have teamed up with the P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program in a cross-campus collaboration that is saving thousands of lives in Malawi by providing clean drinking water," said Myron Cohen, director of the Institute for Global Health and Infectious Diseases at UNC. "This far-reaching collaboration is providing service and research opportunities for our students and making a powerful impact on the lives they touch through their work."
