Kimberly-Clark’s HAKLE Brand Changes Lives in Angola and South Africa

Nov 17, 2016 1:30 PM ET

HAKLE, the leading tissue brand in Switzerland, has joined forces with the world’s leading children’s organization, UNICEF, to transform the lives of children and their families in Angola and South Africa.

Part of the Kimberly-Clark’s global Toilets Change Lives (TCL) Program, the partnership will provide better water and sanitation at schools in South Africa and empower communities to build toilets in Angola. Securing the support of Switzerland’s largest retailer and supermarket chain Migros as an exclusive partner, the HAKLE brand will donate a portion of its proceeds from every product sold until the end of the year to help people in Angola and South Africa.

Caroline Pfister, Associate Brand Manager said, “Learning that unsafe water and poor sanitation can be deadly for children and their families and seeing the great work done by Kimberly-Clark colleagues across EMEA, we realized that we too could create a sustainable, positive change in these communities.”

The initiative is another step towards achieving Kimberly-Clark’s Sustainability 2022 goal to improve the wellbeing of 25 million people in need. HAKLE joins other Kimberly-Clark brands such as ANDREX in making lives better for recipients of the program in Angola and South Africa.

“Proper sanitation can save lives, and with World Toilet Day on the 19th November, we’re happy that we are contributing to the awareness on this important topic,” said Anika Fischer, Senior Brand Manager. “We are so excited to be working with UNICEF, and are incredibly proud of the work we are doing to help people in Angola and South Africa.”
