How does this gift help?
Your gift is humanitarian support for a family affected by disasters.
Around the world natural and human-made disasters force millions of people to flee their homes and leave everything behind. Many arrive in refugee camps with only the clothes they are wearing. Your gift makes sure that refugees and other affected by disasters have clean water to drink and wash themselves.
One of the families supported by Oxfam’s humanitarian work is that of Rosina. Rosina and her two daughters are Rohingya refugees, living in a refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh. Jesma, (10), and Jainab, (8), help their mother with running the household. The two young girls are responsible for collecting water each day for washing, bathing and cooking. Jesma shines with ambition and wants to be a doctor when she gets older. Your gift gives Rosina’s family renewed hope and a chance of a better future.
“Previously we used to collect water from streams we suffered from diarrhea and fevers. Now we collect clean water from the tank. Thanks to Oxfam, we have been provided with water and food. We can manage now.”
