On March 11, 2020, the WHO declared Covid-19 a pandemic. A year on. The disease affected us all in different and unpredictable ways, and hit Oxfam too. But because of the belief and goodwill of our amazing supporters and partners we emerge having helped 14 million people around the world. Here's a snapshot of the past year of our work.
The World Food Program (WFP) in Niger, the country worst-hit by the West Africa food crisis, has been forced to make an "agonizing" decision to abandon plans to provide emergency food to families with children over the age of two because of a huge funding shortfall.
Zimbabwe has entered its peak hunger period with more than half the population now dependent on food aid. The situation could rapidly worsen as vulnerable households are set to receive smaller food rations this month because of funding shortfalls.
