Emergency funds are crucial for Oxfam to act quickly whenever disasters occur around the world. With your help, we can launch a rapid response after tropical cyclones, earthquakes or human-made accidents.
Each year more than 30 million people flee their homes or lose their livelihoods as a result of conflict and natural disasters. We believe everyone has a right to a warm, safe and secure home – and we know you feel the same. Emergency funds are crucial for Oxfam to act quickly whenever a tragedy occurs around the world. With your help, we can launch a rapid response after tropical cyclones, earthquakes and volcanoes, or support those who are displaced by conflict, such as we are seeing in Syria, Myanmar, Afghanistan and Ukraine.
When these disasters hit, Oxfam responds as one of the world’s leading providers of humanitarian aid in emergencies with established expertise in clean water, sanitation, public health, food security, and the protection of civilians. We are working in emergency situations in over 30 countries and have earned a strong global reputation for scale, speed, and innovation. We respond directly and we stay for the long-term to help families rebuild their lives and improve the underlying infrastructure so we can reduce the risk of future disasters.
