P&G’s Children’s Safe Drinking Water program to aid Pakistan flood victims
CINCINNATI Procter & Gamble’s not-for-profit program is teaming up with the U.S. State Department’s Pakistan Relief Fund.
P&G said its Children’s Safe Drinking Water program will provide 28 million PUR water treatment packets to help flood victims in Pakistan. The program utilizes PUR packets, a water-purifying technology developed by P&G and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to help reduce sickness and death resulting from drinking contaminated water. One small PUR packet quickly turns 10 liters of dirty, potentially deadly water into clean, drinkable water.
"P&G’s commitment to help in times of natural disasters is how we fulfill P&G’s purpose to touch and improve lives," said Bob McDonald, P&G chairman, president and CEO. "P&G is eager to bring clean drinking water to the people of Pakistan by partnering with USAID and the U.S. State Department’s Pakistan Relief Fund so that our many partners in Pakistan can provide more than a quarter of a billion liters of clean drinking water."
