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.
On June 24, Oxfam's G8 "Big Heads" were in Huntsville 'naked' and 'pregnant.' Their modesty preserved only by a maple leaf, they will illustrate the G8's failure to keep their promises to poor people around the world.
In 2005, the G8 promised to increase aid by $50 billion dollars but five years later, they have come up $20 billion short. And this year, 350,000 women will die from preventable deaths in childbirth because of a lack of basic healthcare.
