Gaza crisis: As the conflict continues, Oxfam is warning of the impact on civilians in Gaza; people are living in cramped conditions with no fuel, very little water and sanitation, and 2.2 million people are in urgent need of food. Oxfam is calling for an immediate ceasefire and for food, water, fuel and other essentials to be allowed to enter. Oxfam spokespeople in the region and in the UK are available for interviews. We also have spokespeople in Gaza but it is becoming increasingly difficult to contact them due to the cuts in communication and the bombardment. We are receiving frequent voice notes from our staff in Gaza for media use. Contact: Oxfam Media Unit / +44 (0)7748 761 999 /

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. For more information contact: Sophie Bowell / +44 (0)7810 814 980 /

East Africa: Climate-induced drought, compounded by ongoing conflict and high food prices, has leftover 31 million people across East Africa facing severe hunger with 85,000 people in South Sudan and Somalia on the brink of famine. Oxfam is calling on the UK government to urgently step up its funding to the region. It is beyond offensive that famine is still a word we hear in 2023.
