When disaster strikes, Oxfam is there.

Oxfam Emergency Response

To be there every time, we need your help: donate to our Emergency Fund and you can help build shelters to protect families in crisis, supply clean water to prevent the spread of deadly diseases and ensure that people who've lost everything have the basics like food, soap and cooking utensils. All vital. All life-saving.

What we're doing

  • Cans being packed into boxes by volunteers

    Working with local partner organisations

    We work in partnership with local organisations so that we can adapt our response fast. For example, in Ukraine our partners are providing essential items like food parcels, blankets, menstrual products, toothbrushes and nappies.

  • Providing shelter to families made homeless in places like Yemen and South Sudan

    When natural disasters strike, or communities are destroyed by conflicts, Oxfam provides support for those who have lost everything.

  • Mako is holding her child in a dust bowl landscape

    Providing food to people facing starvation as a result of extreme weather events

    Many parts of the world are in the grip of a devastating food crisis. Oxfam is there to provide life-saving support.

Oxfam's Emergency Fund allows us to respond rapidly to natural disasters and emergency situations. Make a donation today and help us respond around the world, around the clock.
