The World Health Organization recommends that frequent hand washing with soap and water is an important protective measure against the spread of COVID-19. However, in rural communities, access to soap can be difficult.
Unilever presented a donation of 10,000 pieces of soap to Barry Callebaut, which managed the distribution to Unilever cocoa farmer cooperatives.
In addition, Barry Callebaut has committed to further supporting farmer communities with:
- The distribution of official WHO posters with COVID-19 protective instructions to farmer groups, via local coaches.
- Supporting governmental dissemination of evolving and urgent information to remote communities, via our coaching networks.
