Four ways we’ve been battling COVID-19

by Oxfam Canada | January 6, 2021

Here’s what Oxfam is doing to help people survive COVID-19 and its economic impact.

When the COVID-19 pandemic emerged early in 2020, Oxfam immediately mobilized a global response. We shifted some of our ongoing development and emergency humanitarian work to respond to new needs arising from the pandemic while ensuring these urgent programs were not ignored as coronavirus restricted the movements of Oxfam staff and our partners.

Because of your critical support, we are making important progress:

1: We’ve reached 11,325,456 people.

So far we’ve helped people in seven regions of the world—well on our way to reaching our goal of 14 million people.

2: We’re working with 581 partner organizations.

We are directly supporting the work of hundreds of partners, who are playing key roles in delivering the help people need in this dire pandemic.

3: We’re helping people in 63 countries.

Alongside our partners, Oxfam is delivering essential assistance around the world, including:

4: We’re mobilizing resources.

We’re more than 75 percent of the way toward our goal of raising $121.3 million for our COVID-19 response, thanks to you and other supporters.

You can help us reach more people struggling to survive COVID-19 and poverty around the world. Please consider making a gift today.
