Product description

For people facing conflict or disaster, the offer of support means everything. That is exactly what this gift can provide. It can provide food and clean, safe water during a crisis. It can give shelter and warmth. And, for people forced to flee their homes, it can give support and protection – and the chance of a new start.
Right now, the world is in the middle of a refugee crisis, affecting millions of people. In Sicily, thousands of migrants arrive each year, seeking a new life. Oxfam works with an association called AccoglieRete that helps unaccompanied minors arriving in Sicily to get the support of a legal guardian – someone who’s there for them, to help them rebuild their lives.

This gift supports our Respond in an Emergency (RE) projects.

This gift in action

A new start

Oumar, 17, was born in Guinea. Having lost his mother and sisters to Ebola, and his father in the civil war, Oumar fled his home country for Mali, then travelled on to Algeria and Libya, before being brought to the coast and told he could go to Italy. “I didn’t want to go to the sea... I was on a small boat for two days with 128 others. We didn’t have life jackets.” Thankfully, Oumar survived and, with the help of Oxfam’s partner AccoglieRete, was given a legal guardian called Savitri. Savitri has supported several young migrants, helping them to apply for asylum, meet other young people and start to shape a new future. The gratitude Oumar feels is clear. “I am extremely thankful of what she has done for me, for my life.”
