Emergencies

Oxfam responds to emergencies around the globe.
Oxfam works to protect people from disasters and conflict because every human being has a right to live in safety. We work with local organizations and governments to save lives in emergencies and reduce future disaster risks. A key focus: help local partners strengthen their skills as first responders and as advocates for a more secure future. When an emergency hits, we provide people with the assistance they need to survive – clean water, sanitation facilities, food, health and nutrition advice, and shelter. Right now, Oxfam Canada is responding to a number of humanitarian emergencies around the globe.
