On Saturday April 16, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Ecuador killing hundreds of people, leaving thousands wounded and causing severe damage to infrastructure. Access to safe drinking water and storage, as well as shelter is urgently needed. With your help we can reach the most vulnerable populations with vital assistance.
Your time and skills are valuable to us
Oxfam worldwide is supported by many thousands of volunteers who are a core part of our team. Our volunteering opportunities range from office work to event organisation to public awareness raising and fundraising. Volunteering with us is an opportunity to develop new skills and make new friends. Our Trailwalker, festivals and music events are all supported by teams of committed and enthusiastic volunteers while across our offices skilled volunteers help us with tasks from marketing to accounting. We also offer formal internships in many of our offices.
If you have time to give and the commitment to end poverty and injustice we are keen to welcome you among our team. Get in touch with your local Oxfam to find out more.
If you don't have a local Oxfam you can still apply to volunteer or intern via one of our affiliates or you can use your time to raise awareness of our work by organizing a local event or fundraising in support of our work.
