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 Mexico is a part of the International Oxfam Confederation. To find out more about Oxfam Mexico visit their website (in Spanish only).
Oxfam in Mexico
At Oxfam Mexico we work to improve the conditions and livelihoods of the most vulnerable people, strengthening their local organisations and having the influence in governments and companies to guarantee their rights.
Our mission is to champion social development such as the increase of freedom and the affirmation of rights and responsibilities, fostering synergies and articulating the faces and voices of society.
At Oxfam Mexico, we promote four social causes:
- Civil society and citizenship - We work to facilitate the shared responsibility between the government and society; in particular, to demand that the State guarantees the quality of public education and health services.
- Food justice and sustainable development - We reinforce the ability of local communities to use sustainable natural resources and to adapt to the effects of climate change.
- Migration and development – We are working to increase the role of migrant organizations in order to influence national and regional public policies with a view to achieving full recognition of the rights of migrants and a more inclusive development.
- Humanitarian action - We respond to emergencies to help to ensure that the people affected receive immediate assistance. We also help to sustainably rebuild the communities and the livelihoods of the population.
