Climate extremes in Eastern Africa have caused widespread food shortages. We urgently need your help to respond.

More than 10 million people across Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia are facing a catastrophic humanitarian crisis as extreme weather events are causing both drought and floods.

An upsurge of locusts has hit the region's already fragile food security situation. 

Oxfam is there with life-saving support, but we urgently need your help to do more.

From our staff

Augustino Buya Mashual, Programme Manager

 I've worked for Oxfam for 24 years. Most of our work in South Sudan involves helping people who have either been displaced by the conflict in this region, or who are supporting people who have been displaced. We provide clean water and sanitation facilities, and also distribute supplies like mosquito nets to prevent malaria.

After decades of brutal war, South Sudan is being built up almost from scratch. It needs increased support - and long-term support - from the international community to help development and to provide security for its people. That's why Oxfam, working as a humanitarian organisation, is important to the country.
