Valuable knowledge of water

As part of our social commitment, we are contributing our knowledge of water to charity projects, especially in Africa.

We have been supporting the African Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF) for a number of years. By the end of 2010, AMREF had used LANXESS’s financial assistance to establish water supplies for 25 Tanzanian schools attended by approximately 10,000 children and provide the sanitary facilities they need. In addition to these infrastructure measures, AMREF also provided hygiene training for teachers and children, thus helping spread the safe water message in their daily lives.

The same important message is the focus of PHASE (Personal Hygiene and Sanitation Education), a new joint project with AMREF launched at our South African production site in Rustenburg in 2012. The project aims to significantly reduce the incidence of disease caused by contaminated water. Thanks to our financial support, more than 750 sets of PHASE teaching materials have been distributed to eight schools. Some 3,000 students, their teachers and parents are benefiting from the newly acquired knowledge.
