Through the eyes of children, parents and teachers, former U.S. President Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton got a personal look at the toll of unsafe water, as part of their visit to Groupe Scholaire Camp Kanombe primary school in Kigali.
“Let me say how grateful I am to both P&G, one of the greatest companies in the world in terms of its responsibilities to society and building into their business model lifting lives of people, and to World Vision, one of the great treasures of NGOs, and the fact that they’re doing this together means a lot to me,” President Bill Clinton said.
Also, Procter and Gamble (P&G) announced recently that it has delivered the 6 Billionth liter of clean drinking water as part of its Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) commitment to save one life every hour by the year 2020.
World Vision and Procter & Gamble are partnering to change that. During the President’s visit, water experts demonstrated the P&G water purification packets. Within 30 minutes the small packet transforms brown, dirty, and dangerous water, making it safe for drinking.
“It’s one of the simplest things we can do to save lives,” President Clinton said.
