Oxfam works with others to overcome poverty, injustice and suffering around the world. You'll be helping to make that work possible.
Our work breaks down into three overlapping areas, all of which are vital to achieving our aims.
Humanitarian response: We respond quickly to emergencies like the Ebola crisis - providing life-saving essentials like safe water and hygiene kits.
Development: We fund long-term work that allows local people to use their own ideas and skills to fight poverty in their communities.
Campaigning: Poverty isn't just about lack of resources; it's about bad decisions made by powerful people. Oxfam campaigns hard for real lasting change.
