Ramadan Appeal

This Ramadan, now more than ever, your donation can bring comfort and hope.

For the many families around the world living with poverty, conflict and disaster, the COVID-19 pandemic comes as a crisis on top of crises. Your donation can help deliver vital essentials — such as clean water, portable toilets, hygiene kits and handwashing facilities — to those who need them most. This Ramadan, bring comfort and hope to people in crisis.

Projects that need your support

Families in Yemen urgently need your help.

Years of deadly conflict have destroyed lives, livelihoods and forced millions of people to flee their homes. As a result, more than 24 million people depend on aid to survive. The country is once again on the brink of famine.

Conditions in makeshift camps are dire. A lack of clean water and toilets make it near impossible to stay safe from diseases as COVID-19 continues to spread.

Your donation can save lives today. Please donate to provide urgent help to families facing starvation and conflict in Yemen.

You can help save the lives of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.

More than 900,000 Rohingya refugees have crossed over to Bangladesh from Myanmar since August 2017.

Now, there are more than a million people crowded together in camps with little or no food, shelter and clean drinking water, the risk of waterborne diseases is extremely high. Women, girls and children are also particularly vulnerable to sexual violence.

We are on the ground, and have reached more than 266,000 of the most vulnerable people with clean drinking water, portable toilets, sanitation facilities and other essential supplies.

Your donation can be a lifeline. But we must act now.

You can impove the lives of Rohingya refugees.

The Covid-19 pandemic has reduced household income and increased food insecurity for both Rohingya refugees and host communities living in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. To improve access to income and allow households to meet their basic needs, Oxfam is providing local women’s and men’s groups with equipment and training to produce reusable masks and sanitary napkins.

Oxfam has opened the largest waste treatment plant ever built in a refugee camp, able to process the waste of 150,000 people – 40 cubic meters per day. Being able to treat large volumes of faecal waste on site, rather than transport it elsewhere, is a big step forward in how to safely and sustainably dispose of such waste in emergencies.

How your donation will help

By making your donation to Oxfam, you can be sure your gift can help people living in poverty or in extreme hardship. We save lives through our humanitarian work, and our long-term development programs empower people to lift themselves out of poverty and thrive.

We partner with communities around the world to improve access to education, healthcare, food,
water and work opportunities — because all lives are equal and no-one should live in poverty.

During this Ramadan appeal, donations will fund two areas of our work:

  • Responding to emergencies to save lives in Muslim majority communities (currently Yemen and Rohingya).
  • Supporting development projects that empower people in Muslim majority communities to lift themselves out of poverty.
