Oxfam works with local organizations and governments to save lives in emergencies and reduce future disaster risks. A key focus: help local partners strengthen their skills as first responders and as advocates for a more secure future. You can help.
Saving lives 24/7
Some disasters can’t be prevented—or imagined in advance. But as soon as they strike, Oxfam needs to be ready to respond. Lives depend on it.
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.
