Help families facing crisis worldwide


We urgently need to help more families around the world who face terrifying violence, poverty or disaster.

Over two and a half years of fighting in South Sudan have forced more than 2.5 million people from their homes and led 4.8 million to struggle to find enough to eat.

New fighting has made a dire situation worse, bringing more hunger and more disease. Oxfam has supported over 1.2 million people.

But it's not just people in South Sudan who urgently need your help today. We urgently need to reach more people facing poverty worldwide.

A monthly donation from you will make a life-saving difference.
