SC Johnson Donates to Protect Brazilians from Mosquito-Borne Diseases

November 22, 2022

SC Johnson, parent company of SC Johnson Professional, recently donated more than 26,000 units of insect repellant to two charities in Brazil.

The two nonprofits, Instituto Dara and Casa Ronald, will distribute SC Johnson’s donations to at-risk families throughout Rio de Janeiro. The region has seen a 300% increase in dengue fever, a mosquito-borne viral disease, since January 2021. The area has also reported an increase in reports of the Zika and chikungunya viruses, which are also spread by mosquitos. In addition to its donations, SC Johnson will host lectures in the communities on preventing mosquito bites.

“Providing communities at risk of mosquito-borne diseases the education and resources to help protect themselves is critical,” said Vera Cordeiro, founder and president of the board of directors of Instituto Dara. “We are grateful for this partnership in working to educate, prevent, and protect the families we serve.”
