Don’t settle for ordinary gifts — tap into something really special. Give the gift of clean, safe drinking water to a family living in poverty in a place like Sri Lanka.
“It was very difficult before, [gardening without water]. We could not even buy the basics before. But now I have money, I can buy clothes and other things. And I can use what I grow in my home garden for cooking ... using the vegetables.”
— Indrani Nallathambi (pictured), gardener, Sri Lanka
When disasters strike, Oxfam mobilises quickly to offer assistance to affected families. One of the key ways we help 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.
