Dettol donates $7 million worth of hygiene products

Partnering with over 75 Australian charities, Dettol is donating 2 million hygiene products, worth $7 million, to vulnerable Australians.

For the 13.6 per cent of Australians living below the poverty line, access to hygiene essentials can be challenging, leaving these communities at higher risk of exposure to germs.

Henry Turgoose, Marketing Director at Reckitt Health Australia, said while Australia’s roadmap to reopen is on track, the pandemic is not yet over.

“Many of our most vulnerable communities are still in vital need of essential hygiene products, including the homeless, children and youth, people with disabilities, migrant and ethnic groups just to name a few.

“We must continue to raise awareness that in addition to vaccination, hand hygiene is a number one way to prevent the spread germs in the community. We’re proud to be able to offer our support to these communities to help them protect the ones they love, and themselves, through access to our hygiene products.”

One of the partnered charities is Good360, a not-for-profit organisation that matches essential goods to those that need them the most, who will help provide the hygiene products to these communities.

Alison Covington, Founder and Managing Director of Good360, said that it’s easy for many Australians to take for granted access to hygiene necessities like sanitisers, soaps, and wipes.

“But during the pandemic, and now as we emerge from restrictions, we’re increasingly being asked by our vulnerable communities for support and advice about how to access these products.

“These product donations from Dettol will not only empower our community to achieve this but will help them feel less vulnerable when asking for help.”
