Helping hand for Haiti

Almost a year on from the devastating earthquake, the International Rescue Committee has mounted a major effort to call attention to the critical role basic sanitisation and hygiene can play in Haiti. Responding to a radio campaign in The Netherlands, Derbyshire based hand hygiene experts, the Deb Group, has donated over 200,000 bottles of Deb InstantFoam hand sanitiser to this cause.

Jeff Bell, Deb Limited’s managing director, said: “As Deb Group is an international group of companies operating in 16 countries, we were able to respond to this radio campaign through one of our international offices: Deb Benelux BV. We are delighted to be able to give a helping hand to Haiti by donating Deb InstantFoam, with the added bonus of being able to supply the product with the labels in French. Our hand sanitiser has been specifically formulated so that it can be used without water to kill 99.999% of many common germs in just 15 seconds and therefore reduce the spread of bacteria quickly and effectively.”

The hand sanitiser will be distributed by the Red Cross and Dutch based organisation, Artsen Zonder Grenzen, providing aid to thousands of people who now live in makeshift camps in Port-au-Prince, following the earthquake in January.
