HOW DOES THIS GIFT HELP?

The money raised through this Survival Kit gift supports vital humanitarian work through our Saving Lives projects, providing what’s needed most when disaster strikes. When a cyclone hit the island of Vanuatu in the South Pacific, Gideon’s family suddenly became homeless. The cyclone blew the roof off Gideon’s home – and the family fled with only the clothes on their backs. But the Oxfam kit he received, full of hygiene essentials like toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap and washcloths meant Gideon and his family were able to stay clean and healthy until they could get back on their feet. “Thank you so much for giving us these things, we really are thankful for you coming to help us.”
