Review 2005

The most significant impact on Oxfam’s income for the financial year ending 30 June 2005 was the response to the Asian Tsunami, both from public supporters and Government. Oxfam New Zealand was able to contribute $3.1 into the coordinated Oxfam emergency response that has already reached 1.8 million people in Indonesia, Sri Lanka and South India.

Oxfam thanks all those people who gave us support throughout 2005 – our financial supporters, volunteers, interns, campaigners and corporate sponsors.
