Emergency relief

Together, we can save lives and help communities rebuild.

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.

Oxfam is one of the world’s leading providers of humanitarian aid in emergencies, with well-recognised expertise in clean water, sanitation, public health, food security, and the protection of civilians. We have a strong reputation for scale, speed, and innovation.

Oxfam responds directly wherever there is a widespread threat to life, health, and livelihoods. And we stay for the long-term to rebuild lives and reduce the risk of future disasters. With your help, we have launched rapid responses after tropical cyclones, earthquakes and volcanoes, and supported those who have been displaced by conflict, such as we are seeing in Syria, Myanmar, Afghanistan and Ukraine.

Each year more than 30 million people flee their homes or lose their livelihoods as a result of conflict and natural disasters. 

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.

Support for Tonga

Tonga eruption

Earlier this year, the people of Tonga felt the earth shake beneath them as one of the largest volcanic eruptions in decades cut them off from the world.

Because of our generous supporters, Oxfam was able to respond immediately and send a water desalination unit over to Tonga to begin purifying water right away. Our local partners are working hard to get clean water to everyone who needs it, but the crisis is not over yet.

Fundraise for Oxfam

Fundraising is a great way to make a difference. 

When you raise money for Oxfam, you’re also raising awareness about injustice, climate change, and poverty. And when people donate to your fundraiser, it can be an important first step for them to take further action.
