Working together to change lives every day

One in five of the world’s people lives without safe water. Two in five lack even basic sanitation. Oxfam supports communities to maintain their own water supplies.

Oxfam’s livelihoods programme seeks to help people in poverty have a sustainable livelihood, including making a decent income and living in a safe environment.

Oxfam is working with women across the Pacific and Southeast Asia to bring about positive change to secure their basic human rights.

When disaster strikes, we move quickly to provide life-saving assistance to people in need. We’ve helped millions worldwide.

Join our call to world leaders, governments, and businesses to play their part in tackling poverty and building a safer, fairer world for everyone.

Stories from our volunteers

Diana Auckland

It’s important for me to focus on what I can do and find the right balance. Leaving a bequest to Oxfam is something I know will make a lasting difference for people living in poverty.

Mary Auckland

Oxfam is one of the main charities I support, and I do so because I feel that I want to reach out to the rest of the world who aren’t as fortunate as I am to live in a privileged country. Oxfam’s values and beliefs fit well with my own.

Pauline Dunedin

What I like about Oxfam’s work is that it works to tackle the root causes of poverty. When I first started supporting Oxfam, most charities focused on child sponsorship. But I’m more interested in a community wide approach.
