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.
Oxfam is responding to the biggest earthquake for 200 years in Haiti. We've flown in more than 60 tons of emergency supplies and equipment, including clean water, buckets, water treatment kits, shelters and sanitation tools allowing us to help more and more people each day.
We have reached 85,000 people across seven sites and are working to expand that to 110,000. With water trucks arriving daily now, our focus now is on preventing the spread of waterborne disease. We still need your support to help Haiti rebuild over the longer-term.
