Give now. Save lives.

EAST AFRICA FOOD CRISIS APPEAL

Millions of men, women and children are in need of urgent help in South Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya. If we don't act now the famine already in parts of South Sudan will spread across the rest of the country. Oxfam's response to the East Africa Food Crisis

We need your help to feed families and save lives.

For every £1 you donate, we will allocate 10p of your donation to cover general support and running costs. A proportion of donations will also be used to cover the cost of fundraising from the public for this appeal.

There is a small chance that we will raise more money than is needed for this project. 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.
