Now, and in the future

Disaster can destroy lives and undo years of development in a split second.

In Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands, annual flooding can decimate the food supply — especially where logging has taken place above areas where people grow their food.

For women like Sailin, Hilda and Unity — who rely on their gardens as a food source — it means their families can go hungry. But thanks to our generous supporters like you, things are changing in Guadalcanal. Oxfam’s program work is helping communities become better prepared for when disaster strikes.
