Emergencies

In response to 31 emergencies across the world we have worked to save lives when crisis hits – to ensure people get access to the essentials they need to survive and the most vulnerable are kept safe from harm. Oxfam’s unique approach to humanitarian response also meant that we stayed long after the dust settled, to help people build back stronger.
