Rebuilding the Gulf Coast: A Year Later
Oxfam believes that disaster recovery is not just about supplies; it's about building back better. Throughout the world, our approach has been to create lasting solutions to poverty by helping people use their knowledge and power to transform their lives. Our work in the wake of Katrina's destruction has proven that this approach is the key to recovery no matter where we work; local voices must drive recovery. But it's not a quick fix. Lasting change takes time.
