The coronavirus pandemic knows no borders. But neither does our common humanity.
You can help people facing coronavirus all over the world. A donation to our urgent appeal with the Disasters Emergency Committee would help families who are facing coronavirus in the world’s toughest conditions to protect themselves.
You can also use your voice to demand a permanent global ceasefire, so that families who are living through conflict have a better chance of survival during this pandemic, and more aid can reach them.
Or you can call on richer countries to cancel the debt of poorer countries so they can use those funds to invest in vital healthcare.

Coronavirus is now affecting overcrowded refugee and displacement camps, such as Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh, as well as places devastated by conflict like Yemen, Syria and South Sudan. Please donate now to help people protect themselves before it spreads further.
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.
The pandemic is already disrupting peace talks, making humanitarian needs greater and increasing gender-based violence. There has never been a better time to act. Call on the foreign secretary to silence the guns & save lives.
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.
The coronavirus pandemic has underlined the importance of care, and threatens to exacerbate the links between care, poverty, gender and wider inequalities.

Whether you’re making your own homemade rainbow soap to raise funds for Oxfam or have already shaved all your hair off like our staff member Bekki, there’s loads of things you can do from home to raise money for Oxfam.

With all the Oxfam shops closed to protect the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and shoppers – you can still help the most vulnerable people around the world buy buying an Unwrapped charity gift.
