Bringing Safe Water to Rural Peru

Sep 3, 2013 12:10 AM ET

On June 30, 2012, we launched a one-year pilot program that uses diluted bleach to disinfect drinking water for four remote villages in Peru. For children in the developing world, unsafe drinking water is a leading cause of intestinal disease, malnutrition and death.

Over the years, Clorox has supported a number of programs aimed at stopping the spread of infection, but this is our first time leading an intervention that addresses the chronic issue of unsafe drinking water in underprivileged rural communities
