P&G Children's Safe Drinking Water: East Africa Famine

Commitment by

Procter & Gamble

In 2011, Procter & Gamble (P&G) committed to providing clean drinking water to more than 2 million people affected by the drought and famine in East Africa through the P&G Children's Safe Drinking Water (CSDW) Program. This required providing 310 million liters of purified water which saved an estimated 1,800 lives and prevented an estimated 13 million days of illness.
The P&G CSDW Program is a not-for-profit effort of P&G to provide clean drinking water with the PUR packets. P&G worked with over a dozen partners across East Africa to provide PUR packets to the most vulnerable people and victims of drought and famine.
