How to help

When a crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic hits, the poorest communities - here in the US and around the world - suffer the worst effects. Women and girls usually bear a disproportionate burden of care in a crisis like this one.

Since March 2020 Oxfam has worked with 581 partners to reach 11.3 million people in more than 60 countries and the US to prevent the spread of the disease in vulnerable communities and support people’s basic food needs and livelihoods. Our goal is to reach 14 million people.

You can help create a more just response to the pandemic, and ensure policies and actions help those most vulnerable to the crisis.

Take action to ensure we get a people's vaccine
