Changing lives on the ground: a day in the life of an Oxfam worker

How do we get the poorest and most vulnerable people of Nepal well-prepared for earthquakes? How does a cash assistance program work? Our teams on the ground are working endlessly to achieve effective and lasting change for people feeling the pain of poverty. Watch how a day in their lives is.

Urgent action is needed now in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Millions of people have been forced from their homes due to conflict and are in dire need of humanitarian assistance. Oxfam is there supplying emergency food and clean water. With your help we can save more lives.

The conflict between Boko Haram and the military operations to defeat it is 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.
