Disaster Aid

When natural disasters occur, we respond with immediate aid - provided unbureaucratically through the Fritz Henkel Foundation – wherever it is needed in the world. After the 2011 catastrophe in Japan, for example, we immediately sent product and financial donations to help our employees and other disaster victims in the region. Similarly, directly after the devastating floods in Thailand, we provided financial aid for our employees and other people in need. In providing this assistance, we take care to ensure that 100 percent of all donations are passed on to the persons affected.
