At any given time, we are responding to over 30 emergency situations. We provide life-saving essentials in the immediate aftermath of a natural disaster and to people affected by conflict, as well as long-term development support. You can help.
The conflict between Boko Haram and the military operations to defeat it that began in Nigeria have spread to Niger, Chad and Cameroon, causing one of the worst humanitarian crises in Africa.
In Chad, 350,000 people are in danger of starvation due to failing food supplies, losing their animals, their lands and crops, and being unable to carry out activities like fishing. The massive movements of people and difficulties in growing crops or distributing aid have left more than 8 million people on the brink of starvation.
Oxfam is there.
We provide people with emergency food support and cash and vouchers so they can buy food from local markets, clean water and better sanitation, including constructing showers and toilets. We are distributing food and cooking equipment, as well as providing seeds and tools to help traders and farmers.
