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.
In October 2010 a regional climate change hearing took place in the Oromia region of Ethiopia.
Supported by Oxfam, the hearing was the first of its kind to take place in Oromia. Lekea Borena, a farmer from the region, spoke at the hearing, telling her story to several thousand people.
Meet Lekea and hear her inspiring story.
