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.
Thanks to everyone who has donated so far to help us provide these desperately needed supplies and equipment.
We aim to provide clean drinking water to at least 300,000 people affected by the conflict in Syria, by early 2014. We are working in partnership with the Ministry of Water Resources and alongside ICRC, UNICEF, Syrian Arab Red Crescent and other agencies.
We urgently need more donations and you can find out how to help at http://www.oxfam.org/syria-appeal
