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.
Oxfam is responding to a major earthquake off the coast of Ecuador. We will shortly be sending teams to the area to assess the extent of damage and how Oxfam can best assist the Government response. This was a very strong earthquake that has already claimed dozens of lives. With strong aftershocks still going on and initial reports of severe damage to buildings and infrastructure, there is not a moment to waste.
Please give what you can to help to reach the people affected by this emergency. Your donation could save lives.
People can donate to Oxfam's response online.
