Help us be there when disaster strikes

Oxfam works in partnership with vulnerable communities to overcome the injustices that keep them in poverty.

When disaster strikes, we’re one of the first to respond with clean water, food, health care and shelter.

We also ensure that women and girls are protected and included in the recovery. 

From climate-related disasters to long-lasting conflicts and insecurity there’s an increase in the number of vulnerable people, displaced, at risk or in need of assistance. 

That’s why we need your continued support to make sure we can be there when people need us the most. 

 And once the immediate danger has passed we can work together with people to rebuild their lives for the long term. 

The need is greater than ever

Mother of two, Hafsa Abdikader Ahmed from Somalia had to leave her home after drought killed her family’s livestock and left them without food or water.

“We used to have more than 150 goats, all of them but two have died because of the drought. I wished we could go back to our village, here in the camp is nothing to live on.”
