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.
We work in more than 90 countries, with development programs in Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, across Asia and in parts of Eastern Europe. Under our single management system, each of those countries is managed by one Oxfam affiliate to develop programs jointly. Click on the map to see what we are doing in each country.
