What we're doing
Rising food prices, a growing population and a shortage of suitable land for crops mean that poverty is a major issue in the Philippines. Women are particularly badly affected, and violence against women is also a big problem here. On top of this, the country is vulnerable to floods, earthquakes, landslides and typhoons. Oxfam creates more opportunities for women here by providing vital tools, advice and financial assistance. We also help people in high risk areas prepare for natural disasters and get back on track in the aftermath.
