Disaster Aid Canada

Mission Statement

At the Soap for Hope Program of Disaster Aid Canada, we are dedicating to meeting the hygiene needs of the needy in our community, here on Vancouver Island and abroad in disaster relief. Two years ago, our Executive Director, Anne McIntyre, was collecting lightly or unused hygiene products from hotels to send overseas in Disaster Aid kits when she asked herself if there was a need for these soaps here in Victoria. She quickly discovered that the answer was not only yes, but many shelters had no budget for hygiene products. This means that if they need to buy soap, then this money has to be diverted from food or other essential programs. 

In the last two years, we have grown to service 26 different shelters/ transitional houses or community centers on Vancouver Island. By diverting hygiene products such as shampoos, bar soaps and lotions that would normally be thrown into the trash, we have been able to help homeless individuals regain their dignity and health while protecting the environment.

Our Mission

To provide and assist in delivering humanitarian aid, shelter, sustainable water systems and hygiene products to people affected by natural and other disasters, or with compelling local need.

How We Fulfill Our Mission

By collecting lightly used or unused products from the hotel and accommodations industry, we divert waste from landfills and help people in need. Our service to the community means we connect and build relationships in the accommodations industry and those organizations that service homeless or at-risk individuals. We process these products to make sure they are clean and organized to make the biggest impact, then arrange for delivery or pick up to our local community or to send overseas.
