How your donations can help
What is Oxfam doing?
- Helping hospitals get oxygen tanks and other equipment.
- Supplying Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to frontline workers.
- Providing food, hygiene kits and handwashing facilities to the poorest and most in need communities.
- Providing cash transfers so families at risk can buy what they need.
In India, the cases are rising on a daily basis. We are on the ground and trying to provide medical equipment [as well as] the usual kits. The need at ground is way higher than expectation and in order to meet all those needs, we need your support. So please support Oxfam India to fight against Covid-19. Thank you.”
Neha Rani Varma, Programme Officer, Public Health Promotion at Oxfam India
Oxfam India have reached 180 families of marginal farmers and daily wage workers in Jorhat and Morigaon in Assam. We have provided dry ration and safety & hygiene kits.
Oxfam has been working with the poorest communities in India for 70 years. Right now, the team is coordinating with the Indian government to respond to the deadly second wave of Covid-19. But they desperately need help from Oxfam supporters across the world to meet the urgent need.
When disaster strikes, Oxfam India works with partners to provide those affected and the most in need with shelter, clean water and food, access to clean toilets and livelihood support. Oxfam is responding to the current crisis in India with oxygen supplies, hospital beds, PPE and other essential medical equipment.
How we spend donations
For every £1 you donate to this emergency appeal, we will allocate 9p to cover general support and running costs. There is a small chance that we will raise more money than is needed for this appeal. If this happens, we’ll spend any additional funds on other Oxfam projects – wherever the need is greatest.
