Donate today and your gift will be matched

Your donation today will be matched by a passionate group of Oxfam supporters* – meaning your gift will go even further to help provide immediate food for hungry families, and give them the longer term support they need to rebuild their lives for tomorrow.

*The matched funding cap of $120,000 has now been reached – thank you all! But please do still donate – every dollar still helps communities living in poverty. This offer does not apply to a monthly donation.

Hunger kills over 2.1 million people each year

This is a global food crisis. Millions of people are suffering through extreme hunger made worse by conflicts. From Ukraine to Northern Ethiopia and Burkina Faso. From Venezuela to the Central African Republic.

Conflict fuels hunger. Often on a massive scale, by disrupting infrastructure and social stability which can make it difficult to get supplies to people in need.

Hunger can also deepen conflict, as it displaces peoples from their homes, lands and jobs – fuelling further hunger while also aggravating and inflaming tensions that underpin the conflict.

Families caught in conflict need life-saving supplies. They need help.

“We fled without luggage, only to save our bodies” – Housseina

Housseina fled with her 10 children when conflict erupted in their area. When the situation was more secure, they returned home. Facing hunger, she started gardening.
