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 continues to fight poverty and deep rooted injustice.
We continued our global development programs in more than 90 countries with disaster risk reduction, income generation and cash-for-work programs among many others.
Although the UN members failed to reach an agreement on a global Arms Trade Treaty, we, together with thousands of people around the world will push to make sure this treaty becomes a reality in 2013.
