On Saturday April 16, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Ecuador killing hundreds of people, leaving thousands wounded and causing severe damage to infrastructure. Access to safe drinking water and storage, as well as shelter is urgently needed. With your help we can reach the most vulnerable populations with vital assistance.
The worst floods in decades in Northern Pakistan are affecting nearly 14 million people. Huge areas have been swamped by contaminated water – clean water and sanitation is critical now to prevent the spread of diseases.
Oxfam is aiming to reach at least 1.1 million people with clean water, sanitation kits and hygiene supplies. Our emergency response includes trucking water and installing tanks to help prevent the spread of water-borne diseases. We are also planning to provide hygiene kits to help people who have lost everything in the floods, as well as cooked food and running cash-for-work programs.
