Our response

Oxfam’s local teams are working in partnership with community-led organisations to distribute hygiene supplies. Together we’re ensuring vulnerable families have items like soap, detergent, menstrual products and more.

Teams are helping to get clean water running for as many people as possible, setting up handwashing stations and training people to become health promoters – getting vital messages out to communities on how to protect themselves from coronavirus.

We’re also working to help people who have lost incomes to buy the food they desperately need for their families. And distributing personal protective equipment to medical and aid workers who are working to save lives and stop the spread.
