Soap Aid is working hard to remain operationalNow, more than ever, soap and good hand hygiene are essential to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Attention New Zealand partners – in line with government advice and the lifting of all COVID-19 restrictions, soap collections have resumed as normal.

Attention Australian partners – in line with government advice, Soap Aid is still recycling soap. Please keep collecting your soap if you can and be vigilant with your hygiene.

  • Use disposable gloves when you handle the soap
  • Keep the soap separated from general room rubbish
  • Keep the soap as dry as possible
  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap for 30 seconds after handling boxes and packages
