Emergency fundraising

At any one time Oxfam is responding to around 25 emergencies worldwide. Fundraising for our emergency work will help save lives.

Our emergency aid includes targeted food distribution, providing clean water and sanitation, as well as cash for food, health promotion, animal health support and disaster risk reduction. It's life-saving work. And we wouldn't be able to do it without people getting together and fundraising for us.

Find out where Oxfam is responding to emergencies now. 


What can I do?

Organise your own fundraising activities

Get your friends, family and colleagues together to raise money for emergencies. Just £50 raised by a cake sale could feed a family of six in Somalia for two weeks. In fact, whatever the fundraising activity the outcome remains the same - you'll save lives.
