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.
Big land deals are putting people and their possessions out of place, forcing them from the place they call home.
To send a global message about this injustice, thousands of you, including actor Dominic Cooper, band Wolf Gang and singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, sent Oxfam photos and videos of ordinary things out of place, echoing the displacement of land grabs. And Coldplay's music video director, Mat Whitecross, put them to an exclusive version of their song, In My Place. Oxfam now needs you to raise your voices in support of change.
This acoustic version of In My Place is from a performance recorded at Absolute Radio's studios in One Golden Square in 2002. Courtesy of Absolute Radio.
