Ending HIV & New Zealand AIDS Foundation have changed our name to Burnett Foundation Aotearoa, after one of our founders - Bruce Burnett.
As a community-based organisation, our volunteers are an extremely important part of almost everything that we do. We love to see new faces and are hugely appreciative of the way the community supports the work that we do.
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 guys all over Aotearoa have easy access to protection! Few people realise that they are hand-packed by volunteers every week in Auckland, Wellington and 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!
