Procter & Gamble, the world’s largest producer of consumer goods, is committed to bringing health and hope to communities by providing the most basic human need — clean drinking water. A strongly aligned partnership with World Vision has helped position P&G to deliver on a commitment to save a life every hour.

What began in 2007 as a small-scale project in rural Malawi has developed into a dynamic, strategic partnership. P&G and World Vision have worked together to deliver access to clean water in 34 countries through P&G water purification packets — a low-cost, easy-to-implement technology that cleanses water of life-threatening contaminants.

And in 2013, P&G and World Vision committed to their largest joint effort to date, bringing 180 million liters of clean water to seven countries in West Africa.
