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 statement on international NGOs' senior salaries
As an organization committed to ending poverty and inequality, Oxfam salaries are set at the level necessary to recruit and retain staff of the quality we need. We believe our senior staff are fairly rewarded for positions that involve extensive strategic and management responsibility, and long hours. Salaries of our senior executives are consistent with those of other international non-governmental organizations – and considerably less than those of an organization of this size and complexity in the private sector.
