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.
World Refugee Day
Oxfam and its partners have organized events to commemorate the World Refugee Day in Jordan and Lebanon. In Tabbaneh, Tripoli (Lebanon), we've organized a carnival with our partner Utopia.
The story of a Syrian refugee who begins a new life in Jordan’s Zaatari camp fixing mobile phones and helps fellow refugees print off photos of happier times is the focus of an upcoming documentary film which will be previewed to mark World Refugee Day (June 20th) as part of a joint campaign by Oxfam and the European Commission’s Office for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection Department (ECHO).
Today we are facing a regional crisis that warrants our attention. A crisis that impacts within Somali shores and to a country dear to Somalis: Yemen.
Long-term vision and committed funding urgently needed from international community as flow of Syrian refugees continues.
