Oxfam

Oxfam brings together people around the world who are unwilling to accept that poverty and extreme inequality exist. As an international relief and development organization, we help women and men in poor countries to build a better future for themselves. In crises and disasters, we save lives and help to rebuild livelihoods. Together with people in North and South, we raise our voices to demand policies that benefit everyone. Side by side with partner organizations, the local population - and you - we are working for a great goal: to eradicate poverty worldwide.
