The Ethiopia famine of 1984 shocked the world - after a BBC news report showed harrowing scenes of people going without food and clean water because of a catastrophic drought.
We saw a huge outpouring of generosity from the public - within months of that BBC report, Oxfam had received £12.5 million in donations. We massively scaled up our efforts to reach people in even the toughest places.
It was then that we developed the Oxfam Biscuit, in partnership with Fox's Biscuits in Batley, Yorkshire. The high energy nutritional biscuit was easier to digest for children and those who were weak from malnutrition.
