The Oasis Townsville offers veterans and their family members opportunities come together and work to support our NQ community by demonstrating what we were good at when we served our country in the military.
The first initiative we began was Operation FARMER ASSIST which has been very successful. We have been deploying to western Queensland since 2018 supporting our farmers who have had to endure drought and floods. More recently, we banded together in Operation TOWNSVILLE ASSIST to help individuals who were disadvantaged in the Townsville floods of 2019. We helped with tasks around their home, including minor reconstruction, which helped them get back on their feet.
We have plans for other operations also as we become stronger. We will bring the capabilities of the veteran community to support the NQ community and have some fun along the way working in teams with our mates.
