When disaster strikes, Oxfam's worldwide network of partners is already on the scene, prepared to provide lifesaving assistance. Once the immediate danger has passed, we seek out the root causes of crises and work to bring about lasting change.

Your gift to Oxfam’s Saving Lives 24/7 Fund will go directly toward our emergency work, present and future, so that when crises erupt, we're ready to spring into action.
