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.
Since the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti six months ago, Oxfam and its partners have been running community canteens, an innovative project to provide food while reviving livelihoods. These have provided support to 15,000 people.
With your support Oxfam is helping Haitians to rebuild their lives, but it's a long road -- please stay with us on the journey.
