Operation Oxfam - October 14, 2017

Take part in Auckland's ultimate disaster simulation...

Spaces for Operation Oxfam, Master the Disaster are strictly limited!

What is the Operation Oxfam Challenge?

Disasters don’t discriminate. They can happen anywhere, at any time, to anyone. Operation Oxfam tests your ability to survive, as a team, in the race against disaster.



Teams of four will need to build and assemble three vital elements for survival - shelter, a water system and a toilet - strong enough to keep them alive in the wake of a huge natural disaster.

Each team will be given an allocated space and limited supplies that will enable you to complete your mission. During your six hour challenge, bonus materials will be distributed to teams who have met their minimum fundraising target. But players, beware! Curve balls will be thrown your way throughout the day.

At the end of the challenge our group of judges will choose the most robust and practical camps that meet the criteria to Master the Disaster.

Why Operation Oxfam

With a growing number of climate events affecting both NZ and the Pacific, there is an increasing need for our communities to be greater prepared and resilient if disaster strikes. We often take for granted that aid will be on hand should a natural disaster occur in our neighbourhood or workplace, but depending on circumstances it may be that we are left with only minimal supplies and support. 

Operation Oxfam will test your team's skills and capability to survive with no aid for three days.

Prepare Yourself – Prepare the Pacific 

Oxfam NZ responds to natural disasters in the Pacific by providing emergency aid, helping to rebuild homes, villages and communities and providing clean water and sanitation. Oxfam NZ can only launch a rapid response to crises and disasters in the Pacific because we have funds ready. The funds your team raises will provide important resources that will save lives.
