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.
Act now with Oxfam and the Rights in Crisis campaign and help us to ensure that people affected by or at risk because of conflict, insecurity and disaster can live in safety and dignity.
