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.
Six months after the massive earthquake, the people of Haiti are trying to rebuild their lives, and one thing helping them do that is theater. Through local partners and psychologists, Oxfam is working with young people in Haiti to put together improvised performances which enable them to express their minds about how they are feeling in the aftermath of the devastation. This video shows how these performances have given people the courage to carry on and continue their lives.
With your support Oxfam is helping Haitians to rebuild their lives, but it's a long road -- please stay with us on the journey.
