Inside Oxfam

A year of hope

2016 was a year of massive upheaval for many people worldwide. But you were there. You supported refugees fleeing conflict and disaster. You brought clean, safe water to desperate people. You fought for equality and fairness. And you helped families to start over. You have given hope to millions of people. Thank you, you should be proud.

Stand as One

We are standing as one with the millions of people forced to flee conflict, disaster and poverty to make sure they get the essential help and protection they urgently need.

Imagine leaving the place you love most of all. Grabbing only what you can carry. Meet Zahia

Refugee appeal

Give now. Save Lives.
