One good thing is leading to another as Oxfam helps farmers like Susanna in Liberia reclaim swamp land to grow rice.
How you're helping change lives
Education can lift communities like Ameera's out of poverty, forever. We lobby governments, build schools, train teachers - whatever it takes.
Since 2008, UK aid has helped pay for more midwives in Ghana - that's more Cecilias saving countless mothers from dying in childbirth.
Good sanitation and better prospects go hand in hand. Teams like Som's help families stay free of disease and facing a brighter future.
Help change lives for good
Clean water on tap, a cow or two, desks for a school... a little help from Oxfam is often all people need to transform their communities forever. See the impact of our work.
We work on long-term projects with communities determined to shape a better future for themselves.
Where we work
We respond fast in emergencies, and stay to help people rebuild their lives.
