The Global Soap Project collects discarded soap from hotels and reprocesses it into new bars that are given to vulnerable populations throughout the world. Partnering with organizations that have existing operations in these communities, the Global Soap Project ensures the soap is distributed to those in need, with the goal of improving health through personal hygiene. Hand washing with soap is among the most effective and inexpensive ways to prevent diarrhea and pneumonia, which together are responsible for more than 3.5 million child deaths each year. A lack of soap can be a barrier to hand washing at schools, community health clinics and refugee camps in developing countries, which rarely have soap or appropriate hand washing facilities. Your donation of 2,000 Hilton points sends 33 bars of soap to refugees, orphans, birth attendants, teachers, students and vulnerable populations around the world.
