The world has been steadily winning the fight against hunger. Now climate change threatens to unravel decades of vital, hard-won progress. Extreme weather is decimating crops, killing livestock and pricing food beyond the reach of the world’s poorest people. 

David Cameron needs to fight for ambitious EU carbon cuts and more support for clean energy. +1 if you agree.

Our CEO Mark Goldring put on a disguise to volunteer in an Oxfam shop, then dug pit latrines in 40 degree heat - all in the name of TV! On Tuesday night on Channel 4, tune into 'Undercover Boss' to find out what happened when our boss hit the frontlines to find out what REALLY goes on at Oxfam.

What's the greatest gift you've ever received? From the Philippines to Syria, for thousands of people, it's not a PlayStation, an iPad or a shiny new bike, but a steady supply of safe, pure water. It's something that - with your help - we've been delivering around the world for more than seventy years.

SHARE this if you appreciate what a gift it is to be able to drink clean water every day.

85% of the population of Turkana has no reliable water supply. Drinking dirty water is unhealthy at best, and potentially deadly at worst. 

So we've installed six vital water boreholes, and now more than 12,000 people - including these playful children! - can drink clean, safe water every day.

We think that's worth celebrating.

Yesterday marked the third anniversary of South Sudan's independence, and the country is on the brink of famine unless urgent action is taken now. Actress Keira Knightley recently travelled to the country with us to see first hand how families are surviving the ongoing crisis, and what we're doing to help them.

He was last seen at Glastonbury, helping us make a song and dance about poverty – and boy can he move! We have to find him – the future of disco depends on it. So please, do your duty for the good of humankind and SHARE this with friends – and help us TRACK THIS MAN DOWN. The search is on.

Our world is not equal. The super rich grow richer, while millions face poverty. We think this is wrong. So we're making a song and dance about it - literally! 

Superstar remixers Eclectic Method are asking you to send in a sound of ANYTHING - your voice, drumming on your desk, whistling on the bus - and they'll turn it into an amazing new song over the next few week.

Right now, millions of children are missing out on education. We’re working hard to change this. In Nairobi, Kenya, we’re providing schools with toilets to boost health AND attendance – so more children, like Irene, can realise their dreams. But we need to do more. So this summer, we’re asking you to make a song and dance about poverty – record a sound for our track now.

Money - it’s the revolutionary new discovery that’s the vital ingredient in ensuring a long, healthy life. See the difference it makes for yourself in just one borough of London.

Even Westminster has very deprived areas, and it’s reflected in people’s life expectancy. Here men in the richest parts of the borough live 17 years longer than those from the poorest…

Great Britain - a land with a reputation for fair play and equal rights is becoming a divided nation of haves and have-nots.
And we’re on course to take the No.1 spot as the most unequal country in the developed world, overtaking Singapore, the US and Portugal.

All this week we’ll be focusing on poverty and inequality close to home.

Cruel Britannia is overseeing an increasingly divided nation if you take into account the lifestyles of the super-rich compared with those of the poorest families.

If, during the week any of our facts about unfairness get right up your nose, please share them.

Inequality – it’s one of the biggest challenges we face in tackling poverty. Right now, the super rich are getting richer, while millions struggle for food, water and shelter. We think that’s unfair, so this summer we’re asking festival-goers to make a song and dance about it. Get involved at the link below & you could win two Glastonbury tickets!

Meet Elizabeth. In her hometown she and her husband had a small farm, were able to grow their own food and sell some at the local market.

She was heavily pregnant when she fled the conflict in South Sudan, forced to hide and then give birth in a swamp, her husband playing the role of midwife. She named her newborn child Swampy. Elizabeth’s husband was killed, and she and her family reached a camp for displaced people - weak, desperate and hungry.

Today, we’re helping Elizabeth and her family, and many thousands like them, with your help. Share this post to help us share Elizabeth’s story and spread the word about what’s really going on in South Sudan.

I’m big, I’m clever and I absolutely will not stop until I deliver clean safe water to thousands of people in need. 

As tens of thousands of people continue to crowd into makeshift camps in South Sudan, Oxfam is pulling out all the stops to save lives. The Flocculator is an impressive machine that can purify and produce half a million litres of water a day for as long as it’s needed. 

And when the next emergency happens... I’ll be back.

Today we are launching an urgent appeal for funds to help the people of South Sudan. More than a million people have been forced from their homes by fierce fighting. They have lost everything – many living in makeshift camps in the most awful conditions.

You’d be surprised what people believe. So back in the land of reality, be assured that 84p of every pound you give us is spent on long-term and life-saving work around the world. Just 7p is reinvested to help us raise vital funds. And 9p is spent on ensuring we are able to run efficiently – what you might call admin – so we can help more people to build a future free from poverty.

For over a decade, you have helped us push, prod and persuade world leaders to do something about dodgy arms deals. It was never going to be easy, but you’re a persistent lot.

And at the start of our ‘mythbusters’ week, what better way to prove campaigning really does work than by celebrating the recent and historic signing of an International Arms Trade Treaty that could save millions of lives?!

A good old-fashioned bar of soap. Nothing fancy. Nothing to get excited about. Until your whole world is turned upside down by a typhoon. Your home is gone. You’re living amongst the rubble, or in a crowded camp where typhoid or cholera can quickly spread. 

That’s when soap is a superhero. The undisputed leader at keeping germs at bay and making sure no more lives are lost.

Water tanks that is! Since the start of the conflict in Syria three years ago, Oxfam has helped tens of thousands of refugees who fled to neighbouring countries. And in 2013, we were finally able to work inside Syria. Despite the ongoing conflict, our emergency team is helping to restore water supplies to more than half a million people living in a country devastated by war.

Since our first emergency appeal in 1943, we’ve established one of the world’s most trusted and experienced emergency response teams. In the last seven decades we’ve developed some ground-breaking and ingenious solutions to get emergency support to as many people as possible, as quickly as possible.  So all this week we’ll be giving you an insight into how we do what we do best – save lives.

Meet Selina, who lives in Nyamikamba, Rwanda. Because you bought a goat for Christmas from Oxfam Unwrapped, she got a goat.

Because she has a goat, her family's crops will flourish so she can eat well. What's more, her family can now sell goats to afford school uniforms, so Selina can get an education and look forward to a bright future.

It's that simple.

We're working to help improve the quality of education provided and encourage more families to send their girls to get an education.

You ain’t seen nothing yet. Really. Leaders still aren’t showing enough political will to truly tackle climate change and hunger. As our planet warms up, extreme weather is killing the crops and animals that some of the world's poorest people rely on to feed their families.

There aren't many children named after a cyclone, but baby Yoly was just two week’s old when Typhoon Yolanda ripped through her home in the Philippines last year. Mum, Cherry Chrisaldo snatched Yoly and ran for her life as buildings collapsed around her. Thousands of people lost their lives, but Cherry’s family survived, and her miracle baby now has a name that will always remind them of how lucky they were.

Read that again: Just five families in the UK are richer than the 12.6 MILLION poorest Brits. Inequality like this is a massive problem, but it's far from inevitable – it's a result of political choices that can be reversed. 

It’s time for change, and we're determined to tackle inequality head on. Help us by SHARING this post to spread the word about the injustice of inequality on our doorstep.

Vaishna’s laugh is infectious and for her mum, Sayantha, the perfect antidote to a long day looking after her cows. Being a widow in rural Sri Lanka isn’t easy, but Sayantha is working hard to feed, clothe, and send her two daughters to school. And thanks to the arrival of her new ‘Oxfam’ cow, delivering high-quality milk every day, there will definitely be more things to smile about in the months ahead.

We think Sayantha is a well-deserved winner of our Mum of the Week. +1 this if you agree!

People often say to us that not all the money raised goes to people who need it. But we reckon six-year-old Aisha would disagree. Her family lives in a drought-hit region of Chad, but Oxfam's training them to grow veg and farm chickens for eggs. It's just one of the ways we're helping families like Aisha's feed themselves for good. SHARE this to help spread the word of the huge difference your donations makes.

Mums are always there. Doing whatever it takes to keep us safe and healthy. If we’re lucky, they’ll be a role model, a best friend. Maya Giorgadze and her 15-year-old daughter, Dea have an unbreakable bond that has helped them through some tough times. They live in one of the poorest regions of Georgia, where medical treatment is extremely expensive. So Maya has ensured that Dea is part an Oxfam-funded health care scheme -- because Dea is just too precious to lose.

Please share if you think Maya is an inspirational mum of the week.

Thanks to our brilliant supporters, Oxfam works hard to make life better for vulnerable people living in poverty. But there’s one catch. They must be living on this planet we all share. You know, our home.

Love - it can bring pure joy, even in the darkest times. Forced to flee Syria, Ahmad and Nariman met in Za'atari refugee camp, Jordan. "It was fate," says Ahmad. "It was love at first sight. I knew straight away that I wanted to marry her." So they found a way, they danced their first dance and they smiled. Please SHARE this - for Ahmad and Nariman and for love.

Twelve-year-old Mohamad lives in a refugee settlement in Lebanon. He misses home, going to school, having fun with his friends. Among the horror and the hardships Mohamad has kept hope alive by growing vegetables, herbs and even roses. If Mohamad can pull off such a miracle, surely world leaders can find a way to secure peace...?

+1 if, like us, you believe the children of Syria should be seen AND heard.

Mums are incredible - they're there for us no matter what. Adoaga, a widow, lives in Chad and has been there for her kids through the harshest times. A severe food crisis meant that, before Oxfam's food distribution, she had to search anthills for grains. Every mum wants to provide for her children - that's why we launched our Mother Appeal, to help mums worldwide do just that. 

Please +1 this if you want to celebrate amazing mums - yours included.
