Your gift will go where it’s needed most and begin to make an immediate difference. Each community we work with has different needs, so we ensure families living in severe poverty have a say in finding the best solution for them and we work with them to make that solution a reality. This means your gift has maximum impact and goes directly to where it is needed most.
When you purchase an Oxfam Unwrapped gift, your donation will fund projects that your gift represents. The gifts support the full range of Oxfam’s work – from emergency responses to advocacy.
Each gift in the Oxfam Unwrapped range has been picked because, alongside the fund that it represents, it plays an important part in helping people affected by poverty to build a brighter future. 
Depending on which Unwrapped gift you choose, the money generated goes into one of four special Unwrapped funds:
  • Saving lives
  • Livelihoods 
  • Women's rights
  • Health and education
Being able to use your generous gift in a flexible way helps us to respond quickly and more effectively in rapidly changing situations, e.g. transporting emergency supplies to often remote communities in a humanitarian disaster. 
We tailor our activities so that they are appropriate to each community we work with.
For example, the money generated by the gift of a Goat will go into our Livelihoods fund, helping communities who rely on animals to have a secure and sustainable living. 
While providing livestock may be the best solution in one area, we might need instead to help farmers learn new agricultural techniques to combat drought in another. Or it could transform people’s lives in other related ways by providing veterinary care for their animals or even village grain banks.
Whatever gift you decide to buy, we’ll ensure that your money gets to the people who need it most. Thank you!
