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.
David Castellano, Oxfam water and sanitation specialist, visited isolated communities in northern Chad last month to check the installation of a new solar powered water pump system that will be servicing a large community. He also took part in a hygiene activity for children focused on good hand washing techniques. Good hygiene practices for children under 5 years old is really important as diarrhoea continues to be the main cause of mortality in the region.
Your support to our humanitarian work is vital. By making a donation, you'll help make sure that in an emergency people have access to immediate life-saving essentials such as clean water.
