What you can do to help

The coronavirus pandemic knows no borders. But neither does our common humanity.

Oxfam is supporting people at home and worldwide, as they stand up for each other, protect each other, and demand fair treatment for us all.

You can help people facing the coronavirus all over the world, from your own home.

Here’s how…

Things to do at home

Now is a great time to learn how to upcycle your clothes - make your own cotton face mask without the need to sew, get knitting, reading or gardening!

Together for global action

From asking richer countries to #CancelTheDebt for poorer countries so we can all unite to respond to the coronavirus together, to supporting calls for a global ceasefire to making sure the international response to the coronavirus protects carers, the vast majority of whom are women – there are loads of ways you can campaign from home.

Join calls to cancel the debt

We’re joining calls for richer countries to cancel the debt of poorer countries so that we can all focus on responding to the coronavirus.
