Oxfam

Helping fight poverty for 70 years

LAST UPDATED AT 11:59 ON Thu 17 Jan 2013

For 70 years, Oxfam has been working globally to overcome poverty. Since we started, we’ve seen people improve their lives – getting an education, receiving healthcare, and earning a living for their families. Despite that progress, one in eight people in the world still go hungry. We know the world produces enough food for everyone. But climate change, food price spikes and a lack of investment are holding people back. We work with communities to help them create long-term, sustainable improvements in their lives, and we’re challenging world leaders to invest in the progress already achieved. We know change is possible. You can help to create a future where there's food for all. Support Oxfam at www.oxfam.org.uk/food4all or text FOOD to 70066 to donate £5. ·
