Today is exactly one month since typhoon Haiyan swept through the Philippines -- claiming thousands of lives when it hit, and devastating millions more.
But in spite of the extraordinary challenges, the massive relief effort continues. And thanks to the generous public response, THIS is how your donations are helping to save lives.

Nelson Mandela inspired so many of us to fight for equality and justice in a very unequal world. And all of us here at Oxfam are saddened to hear about his death.
Here's a statement from Oxfam International's executive director, Winnie Byanyima:
"We honor President Mandela not only for his vision, courage and sacrifices for the liberation of South Africa but for promoting forgiveness and reconciliation following the end of apartheid. Madiba spoke for all oppressed people in the world. He was the most consistent and powerful voice for social justice in the 20th century."
My deepest condolences go to H.E Graca Machel, President Mandela's entire family and all the people of South Africa."

There's big news on our 12 Days of Giving appeal. The UK government has agreed to match every single donation, pound for pound. That means any gift you give to help Syrian refugee families will be DOUBLED at absolutely no extra cost to you.
It could mean double the number of babies with blankets. Double the children with winter clothes. Double the families with fuel to keep warm. So it's a massive, massive opportunity to double the difference we can make this winter.
Please SHARE this news and help us double the difference we can make for Syria's families.

We need your help with something BIG. Over the next 12 days, Oxfam supporters, shoppers, volunteers and a few famous faces are joining forces to raise £1m for Syria's refugees. It's a massive target, but with your help we can make it happen.
To start off, you can help us make a big noise on social media. Everything you do will raise awareness, and help get the message out to as many people as possible.
This is day one -- keep your eyes peeled for more posts, and together we can help Syria's refugees through the winter.

9 December will mark 1000 days of conflict in Syria. And as that date approaches, the situation for many Syrians who've fled their homes still remains desperate.
Thousands of Syrian refugees in Lebanon say they are having to sell whatever jewellery they have, to pay rent and buy food. And many families face mounting debts.
The recent announcement that Geneva peace talks will take place in January is a promising sign. But these must not be talks just for the sake of talks. Millions of Syrians cannot wait a

Since the Philippines Typhoon Appeal launched a couple of weeks ago, we've been overwhelmed by the response. So many of you have given up your evenings, your weekends, and your free time to help.
Like in the photo here, which we were sent earlier this week, where volunteers raised more than £700 on the streets of Poole, Dorset.
They'll be out raising cash again on Saturday. And as one of the volunteers told us, they're hoping to have more helpers involved to: "[We] encouraged our friends and relatives to get involved and be united as British-Filipino citizens."

What you're looking at here are two satellite photos of Anibong in the Philippines, taken before and after typhoon Haiyan.
But beyond the scale of the destruction that these photos capture, there are millions of people trying to rebuild their lives.
And so as Filipinos continue to show incredible courage, our teams on the ground will do all they can to support them -- not just today, but in the months and years to come.

We've teamed up with Nectar to turn your points into donations to our Philippines Typhoon Appeal. 500 points = a £2.50 donation (or 5 emergency health kits to prevent the spread of disease).

The grand total for donations to the Philippines Typhoon Appeal is now... £39 million! Thank you so much to all of you who've chipped in so far. Saleh Saeed, the director of the DEC, summed things up nicely when he said: "We have been completely overwhelmed by the kindness and compassion from the public."
But although roads are beginning to clear and aid continues to get through, the situation for many is still desperate. In some areas, the devastation is so vast that it could take months, if not years, for people to get back on their feet.
That's why we're in this for the long-haul. Click SHARE if you are too.

This is incredible. Today, the total donations to the Disaster Emergency Committee Philippines Typhoon Appeal stand at £13 million. Such fantastic news. Especially as their appeal only launched two days ago.
But still there is a long way to go. The scale of devastation in the Philippines is vast. Millions of people are affected. Your donations will help provide shelter, water and sanitation.

Oxfam aid delivery!
Hygiene kits including soap, blankets, underwear, toothpaste and toothbrushes arrive at an Oxfam warehouse in Cebu city.
Redd Swing from Oxfam’s logistics team (centre, in white t-shirt) is working with Oxfam staff and volunteers to unload the items into the Oxfam warehouse.
The warehouse space, formerly used for an export business and now leased out as filming space, was donated to Oxfam by Cebu resident Mani Osmena and her family.
“Everybody needs help, and this is the least we could do,” Ms Osmena said. “Why does a charity need to pay (for warehouse space) when they are only giving to help the needy?”
The hygiene kits were sent to Cebu Airport from Manila, to be ready for dispatch to typhoon affected areas.
Oxfam is planning to distribute about 3000 hygiene kits within days.

And you can see more of her incredible story -- from fleeing Uganda at age 17, to becoming an engineer and then an MP, and finally on to Oxfam -- on the link below.

Over the coming few weeks, we're rustling up a mighty herd of people to raise £8,000 -- enough to buy 100 cows -- to help change the lives of hundreds of people living in poverty.
Cows are udderly brilliant. In countries like Bangladesh, dairy farming has helped people to earn a reliable income for the first time in their lives.
So follow the link below and find out how you can become a cow-funder. And even better, for every pound raised by 20 December, a generous donor will doubled it!

We've added a few photos from the event here. If you like the look of the event, visit our website and pre-register for next year:

Happy Diwali to everyone celebrating the festival of light today!... At this time of year, many people working overseas will also send money home, providing a life-line for their families. In fact last year, £3bn worth of remittances were sent from the UK to India alone, a third of which happened at Diwali.
Yet many banks take as much as 5%, meaning that large chunks of money never reach those who need it.
This is why we've launched a new partnership with Transferwise, making it easier and fairer for everyone.

This October there have been hundreds of music events across the country, as Oxjam Music Festival ran for its 7th year.
The success of each gig is down to the volunteers who give so much of their time, energy and creativity to raise money for Oxfam. It really couldn't happen without them.
That's why this year we've launched the Gig Maker of the Year competition. We're on the lookout for someone who has gone the extra mile to create a really special Oxjam event that truly celebrates their local music scene. And the prize up for grabs is a top-class Marshall Hanwell Speaker and a summer's worth of festival tickets!
So if you put on an Oxjam event, or know someone who did, enter here now:

Kalpana Oli (in the photo here) is a farmer in Nepal. For the last 7 years, Oxfam's worked in her village, helping women like her to form a cooperative so that they can pool their resources and learn new farming techniques.
This November, we need your help to make sure more mothers like Kalpana can give their children the future they deserve. And to help kick things off, some generous donors have promised to double donations we receive to this new appeal -- meaning that if you can chip in £10, they'll add in an extra £10 too.
There's more about the project, and how you can support it, on the link below:

Hi folks. Here's a request we're hoping a few of you might be able to help us with. We'd like to know... have you ever experienced a random act of kindness?
Maybe someone gave you an opportunity that's really helped you, or even changed your life. Maybe the support of a friend got you through a difficult time. Or perhaps a stranger once did you a good deed, just when you needed it most.
We'd love to hear your stories, so if you've got one to share, please leave us a COMMENT below. We'd like to feature a few of them in Oxfam's monthly magazine too -- so if we're able to use yours, we'll be in touch. Thank you.
