Together we can help people facing poverty all over the world – all from right

find yourself at the heart of your community, making amazing things happen.
What Oxfam does
Oxfam is a movement of people from around the world who won’t live with
poverty. We have two key aims:
Responding to emergencies happening in the world now, giving vital
support to people facing poverty due to conflict, climate change and
Empowering communities to challenge and change systems that promote
inequality, so together we can beat poverty for good.
Oxfam shops have been fundraising to support Oxfam’s work since 1947,
raising millions every year to support people facing poverty.
