Extreme weather and other events can sometimes devastate entire communities and they bring new challenges to those communities around staying healthy when disaster strikes.
These include flood waters, contamination by sewage and water damage, to name but a few. All of these issues provide a haven for bacteria and other germs and sometimes you don’t even have the water you need to help with the clean-up process.
At Dettol, we are committed to helping when people need it the most and often that’s when a disaster strikes. Here are a few examples:
- Children’s Emergency Fund: Dettol, and our parent company RB, partners with Save The Children globally, to provide support to children in times of disaster worldwide. In 2007, the Children’s Emergency Fund (CEF) was established to provide a rapid on-the-ground response to any disaster.
- Disaster relief efforts: Where disaster strikes, Dettol responds with donations of free products and sometimes monetary donations to disaster relief efforts. Examples of this include Thyphoon Haiyan in The Philippines and the tornado that hit the US in 2013.
Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organisation for children. Save the Children works in more than 120 countries saving children’s lives, fighting for children’s rights and helping them to fulfil their potential and RB and Dettol are proud partners of Save The Children.
