Give now. Save lives.

Oxfam's emergency fund

A donation to Oxfam's Emergency Fund can help us respond to disasters as soon as possible. Use the form below to give a one off gift, or make a regular donation here.

For every £1 you donate to this emergency appeal, we will allocate 9p to cover general support and running costs. There is a small chance that we will raise more money than is needed for this appeal. If this happens, we'll spend any additional funds on other Oxfam projects – wherever the need is greatest.

How Oxfam works in emergencies

When catastrophe strikes - such as an earthquake, a conflict, a hurricane or flood – the danger to life and health can quickly overcome people’s capacity to endure. Your donation means we can reach them fast with emergency assistance - water, food and protection – to help them survive. And we stick around to work with local communities so that people stand a better chance of recovering and rebuilding their lives free from poverty.

Every penny counts when it comes to emergency responses, and we are so grateful that you would choose to help save lives. So we promise to use your donation wisely. That means we will:

  • Administer your donation efficiently, putting your gift to work effectively
  • Acknowledge and welcome all new supporters and provide information and insight about Oxfam's work
  • Keep you up-to-date on how your support is helping to change life for some of the world's poorest communities.
