ISIS attacks in Iraq have meant thousands of people have been forced to flee their homes, leaving families with young children in desperate need of basic food and supplies.

By texting today, your £10 will go directly onto a card that can be used to buy essential provisions like rice, eggs, oil and wheat.

Oxfam will make sure it reaches only the most vulnerable families, children, widows, the elderly and disabled.

What will your donation buy?

Some of the essential provisions that can be bought with the lifesaving card are:


  • Wheat

  • Rice

  • Eggs

  • Milk powder

  • Sugar

  • Vegetable oil

Top up cardThe cards can only be used to buy essential provisions, but even when someone has lost everything, it is the freedom to choose that can preserve dignity and restores some sense of control over your life and ability to provide for your children.
