Water for a family
On a hot day, a glass of water is always well received. At the pub? Probably not. But rest assured this one will always go down a treat as it is protecting communities in Nepal from life-threatening water-borne diseases. Cheers!
How This Helps
When disasters like the devastating April 2015 Nepal earthquake strike, Oxfam mobilises quickly to offer assistance to families affected. One of the key ways we helps is to provide them with hygiene and water kits to protect them from the very serious threat of waterborne diseases. This is just one of the ways we work to help people survive and rebuild their lives.
“These [Oxfam] buckets have helped us a lot. Early in the morning we go and fetch water and we can come back with four buckets of water. It helps a lot, so does the jug we can use to drink water. It means a lot to us.”
— Anu Shrestha, earthquake survivor, Nepal
Gift Cards Which Make a Difference
Wow you read right to the bottom of the page, now what? Here’s some other fun things to try out. Why not buy a goat for a third world country, or write a post on Facebook about how buying charity gifts online from Oxfam Unwrapped, is absolutely the most terrific way to buy Christmas gifts there has ever been. Or you could buy an early mother’s day gift, buy yourself a corporate gift on your boss’s credit card, or send someone some poo in the post.
