UOARed is the Red Cross' University of Auckland chapter.
UOARed aims to promote the work of Red Cross on campus, in accordance with the seven fundamental principles of the movement - humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality.
UOARed is primarily focused on fundraising and social events at the University level and facilitating voluntary activities at the wider community level, voluntary internships with the Red Cross and training programmes such as first aid.
Fundraising events will occur quarterly in the form of bake sale fundraisers, bucket donations and donations of second hand goods. A flagship event will be held on the World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day and will have a theme accompanying the event.
Through its endeavours, UOARed hopes to foster a vibrant humanitarian spirit that resonates with the student body at the University of Auckland, and equip students with the skills needed to create a positive effect during their time at University and in the future.
