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.
In rural Afghanistan, job opportunities are scarce - especially for women. Oxfam has helped a group of women to set up a bakery in their village, with the goal of improving the lives of the women and their families by helping them earn a living.
The bakery gives them not only an income, but a place to discuss what matters to them - like an education for their children.
