HOW DOES THIS GIFT HELP?

The money raised through this Soap gift will support vital humanitarian work through our Saving Lives projects, providing what’s needed most when disaster strikes.

A lack of sanitation in Binta’s village in Niger was putting children’s lives at risk. But Oxfam’s support with health and hygiene – including providing soap – helped Binta keep her daughter Fati safe from deadly diseases. When Fati became sick, Binta took her to the treatment centre and received help as well as hygiene training and some Oxfam soap.

“Today my little girl is well. I learned to wash my child, to wash her hands every day. The conditions here have really improved. I’m able to work again.”
