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 has sent 25 tons of aid to Syrian refugees in Jordan from our warehouse in Bicester, UK. This aid has been made possible by the generosity of our supporters but much more is needed. The UN's refugee agency UNHCR has said that more then 1.6 million people have fled Syria since the conflict began.
