A desperate and largely unknown humanitarian crisis is deteriorating in the Lake Chad Basin region of West Africa, forcing millions of people to flee their homes and leaving millions more in need of humanitarian assistance. Oxfam is providing life-saving support but help is urgently needed to prevent the crisis turning into a catastrophe.

What peace means to South Sudan

South Sudan, 5 years after becoming independent, is facing an acute humanitarian crisis due to an ongoing conflict. Security, growth, freedom... Peace means different things across this vast country. Oxfam asked people across the country what peace means to them, hoping to show that the only way to address this crisis is to end the violence.

People gather around an Oxfam provided water tank in Hariso, Ethiopia, which provides 10,000 cubic metres of water a day.

Ethiopia, alongside Kenya and Somalia, is suffering from a catastrophic drought that has led to a humanitarian crisis. Millions of people are facing acute food and water shortages, and are in urgent need of emergency assistance. Your support now will help us save more lives.
