The Live, Learn and Thrive Signature Program: Children’s Safe Drinking Water, which is sponsored by Proctor & Gamble (P&G), has received a Tech Museum of Innovation’s 2007 Health Award. The Tech Museum recognizes the efforts of those applying technology to benefit humanity and spark global change.
In collaboration with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, P&G has developed a low-cost water purification technology, to purify even heavily contaminated drinking water so that it meets World Health Organization standards for safe drinking water. P&G provides the product that has already yielded millions of liters of safe drinking water. The product has been used to respond to some of the most critical global emergency relief situations, including the tsunami in Asia, hurricanes in the Caribbean, and floods in the Philippines and Bangladesh.
