Condom Packing Nights
Each year, Burnett Foundation distributes around 750,000 free condom and lube packs around Aotearoa. This is a vital part of our work, as it ensures people all over Aotearoa have easy access to protection! Few people realise that they are hand-packed by volunteers every week in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington and Ōtautahi Christchurch.
On an average condom-packing night we might have 20-30 volunteers in each city and they’ll pack between 3,000 and 5,000 condom and lube packs over a couple of hours.
Condom packing night is not just about helping your community. It’s also a great way to meet new people. It’s always a great night, with drinks, nibbles and lots of great conversation!
