Gaza crisis: Oxfam is warning of a humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza as 2.3 million people are trapped under bombardment, living in cramped over-crowded conditions with little or no fuel, medicines, food, water and sanitation. Oxfam is calling for an immediate and permanent ceasefire to end the violence, allow the delivery of more aid into Gaza and ensure the safe release of hostages. Oxfam has spokespeople in Gaza and receives frequent voice notes from for media use. We also have spokespeople in the region and in the UK available for interviews.

Climate: People in countries that have done the least to cause the climate crisis are paying the highest price with extreme weather destroying people’s lives, homes and jobs. Oxfam is calling on the UK Government to make the biggest and richest polluters pay, to generate finance that can support communities most impacted by climate change as well as ending the era of fossil fuels in the UK.
