Inside Oxfam

How you changed lives in 2015

Your kindness helped to get water flowing, teachers teaching, children learning and crops growing. You provided shelter and comfort when homes were devastated in the Nepal earthquake in April. You gave socks, coats and kindness to families fleeing conflict in Syria. And you helped bring the world a step closer to ending poverty. Thank you.

From getting warm clothes to refugees in Serbia, to bringing clean water to families in South Sudan - Oxfam supporters made incredible things happen in 2015. If you were one of them, thank you. For being there every time disaster struck. For making the future a little brighter for families facing unimaginable hardship. And most of all, for proving that you won't live with poverty - not now and not ever. 

Happy new year from all of us here at Oxfam.
