Clean the World is a social enterprise whose mission is to save millions of lives around the world through the recycling and distribution of soap. Since 2009, Clean the World has distributed more than 53 million bars of soap to 12 million people across 127 countries. Now, because handwashing with soap is so effective at preventing the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, European countries, including the Netherlands, need our help more than ever.
Right now, we have 20 tons of soap in storage at our Clean the World facility in Amsterdam that is waiting to be recycled so it can be distributed. We simply need to raise enough money to cover the costs of recycling. Before the start of the virus, European hotels had provided Clean the World with financial support for the recycling of their used soap. However, due to the impact of COVID-19 on the hospitality industry, the hotels have had to stop this support. Without funding, we cannot continue with our soap production and distribution.
The WASH Foundation needs to raise funding to produce and deliver 235,000 bars of fresh recycled soap to people and institutions to fight COVID-19 in the Netherlands and other countries in the coming months. Join our fight against COVID-19 in the Netherlands and make a potentially life-saving donation today.
