TOGETHER, WE ARE BEATING POVERTY

Last year, Oxfam supporters helped 12.8 million people fight poverty. With your support, we provided life-saving supplies to families hit by the world’s worst conflicts and natural disasters. And we helped communities around the world get clean water running, grow food, campaign for change – not just to fight poverty now, but to beat it for good.

Danny Sriskandarajah, CEO, Oxfam GB
