For Nyambon, peace in South Sudan means having a choice.

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.

From 2017, the Oxfam International Secretariat will begin its move to Nairobi in Kenya. We have signed a Memorandum of Understanding and a Host Country Agreement with the President and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kenya. I must give my personal thanks to President Uhuru Kenyatta for being such an enthusiastic champion to help realize our plans.

As Malawi experiences the worst drought it's had for 35 years, exacerbated by El Niño, many are suffering from hunger and starvation. Benjamin Phillips, Oxfam Humanitarian Officer, shares with us his experience on a recent visit to the country.

What is GROW?

Almost a billion of us go to bed hungry every night. Not because there isn't enough, but because of the deep injustice in the way the system works. 

Besides, wild weather and unpredictable seasons are changing what farmers can grow and is making people hungry. Food prices are going up. Food quality is going down. Soon, climate change will affect what all of us can eat. For nearly a billion people in poverty, more extreme weather and more disasters mean more hunger.

Another future is possible, and we can build it together. Over the coming years, decisive action around the world could enable hundreds of millions more people to feed their families and prevent catastrophic climate change from destroying their (and our) futures.

Climate change. Poverty. Hunger. It’s all the same fight.
