Blue Ridge Community Church took 5,000 bars in 2011 to an orphanage in Ethiopia.  Like so many orphanages in developing countries around the world, these recipients could not afford to provide regular access to soap for the children.  Soap from the Global Soap Project helps fill the gap in supply when other sources are unavailable, ensuring the children have continuous access to lifesaving soap and preventing the spread of hygiene and sanitation-related diseases.
