Kimberly-Clark Cares for Communities Impacted by Recent Earthquakes in Turkey and Syria
In response to the recent devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, Kimberly-Clark is donating essential health and hygiene products to support active relief efforts across the region, including the company's Kotex®, Huggies®, Kleenex®, and Kimberly-Clark Professional™ products, which it's working to distribute as quickly as possible.
The company is coordinating the urgent delivery of products from its manufacturing facilities around the globe, including 2 million Huggies® diapers and 100,000 packs of Kleenex® wipes.
