Global Soap Sends 160,000 Bars of Soap to Refugees in Liberia

468422_10151661846586967_1884544752_oLast week, we sent 160,000 newly recycled bars of soap — that’s 40,000 pounds of soap — to refugee camps in Liberia!  In partnership with CARE, the soap will be distributed over the next several months to individuals and families fleeing the political turmoil in the Ivory Coast.  Because many people in refugee camps lack access to simple things, like soap, they’re at a much higher risk of contracting potentially lethal illnesses — which are totally preventable through handwashing with soap.

Liberia marks the 30th country to receive our soap.  Stay tuned this summer for more updates on this new partnership!
