See the impact of our work

As well as responding to emergencies like drought or famine, or providing aid, Oxfam is working in nearly 40 countries across Africa to change lives for the better.

Oxfam has been one of the UK charities helping in Africa since 1954 helping to save lives and support families, communities, and local organisations as they build a future free from poverty.

Make a donation and support our work on vital issues to tackle the root causes of poverty, from life's basics - food, water, health and education - to complex questions around aid, climate change and human rights. Giving just a small amount can really make a difference.
