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

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.
