The world spends just $22 billion on saving lives in disaster situations. To put that into context, in 2013, we spent a cool $59 billion on ice cream alone. If this shocking statistic gives you brain freeze, please SHARE it with your friends.

Congratulations to everyone who’s got their A-Levels today. It’s amazing what an education can do. If you’re living in poverty, it really can be life-changing stuff. Right now, our schools projects are helping transform futures around the world. We reckon that’s worth celebrating. http://po.st/9rf0X2

This story is so inspirational!

This is Alex, pictured with his daughter, Ethel. After his wife died Alex has been bringing up his daughter, all while taking part in our 'I Care About Her' project. The project was launched in 2012 to tackle issues of gender inequalities that women are currently facing in Zambia.

Alex said: "It is because of my love for Ethel that I am taking part in this project. I believe that when people see me looking after Ethel they see me as a good example for the community. I bring my daughter to the discussions as well, I believe it is a good lesson for her."

Before conflict in Yemen broke out, 10 million people were going hungry every day. That number has now reached almost 12 million; nearly half the population does not have enough to eat. We are urging the government to push for a permanent ceasefire in Yemen, so that vital humanitarian assistance can be delivered to people who desperately need it.
If you agree that violence doesn’t help those who are already
suffering, please SHARE this post now.

Conflict has resumed in Yemen, and the toll on civilians is
getting worse by the day. Oxfam staff are on the ground and
reaching as many people as they can. But relentless violence
is making a dire humanitarian situation worse – prices of food
and fuel are spiralling out of control and people are struggling
to find basic necessities.
We can’t let that happen. Join our call for permanent and
lasting peace in Yemen – sign the petition now. http://po.st/pneeFP

The crisis in Yemen is worsening. After a week of air strikes, escalating violence and the closure of land, sea and air routes into the country, food prices have doubled and fuel prices quadrupled in some areas.
We are planning to help 80,000 people in the coming weeks with cash for basic necessities, and clean water, but we need your help. Please text YEMEN to 70064 to donate £5*. Thank you.

Meet Nyota (name changed). She’s nine years-old and she lives in Democratic Republic of Congo. She works every day collecting stones from the river bed, carrying them up a steep hill and smashing them up to sell as gravel to builders. 

Nyota says: “I live under the bridge with my parents and my brother. I came here to carry rocks. It’s hard work. In the morning I carry rocks and after that I go to school. I help my Mum every day so she can buy clothes and pay for school fees. When I break the rocks, they accidentally spark and cut my leg."

In North Kivu, Democratic Republic of the Congo, most people earned their living from farming. But the conflict forced thousands of people to leave their homes and they now live in temporary camps, unable to access their own land.

These families may have survived the disaster, but it’s not over yet. Conflicts do not just affect people during the violence. The impacts are long lasting, and the legacy of the conflict is widespread poverty and unreliable incomes. Alarmingly, 71% of people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo are currently living on less than $1 a day.

Eudes (name changed) is collecting water from an Oxfam tap stand in Buporo camp, in the Democratic Republic of Congo. He says: “I wash my hands five times a day so I’m not sick.”

We have installed four tap stands in the camp and 62 double blocks of latrines. The water comes from one water tank and one concrete tank on the hill above the camp that we installed. They capture natural spring water and pipe it to tap stands in Buporo camp and the surrounding community, supplying close to 4000 people like Eudes with clean water.

Apple isn't the only big company who have been in the headlines accused of avoiding taxes in the UK. Companies including Google, Facebook and Amazon have all made the news for the same reason.
That's why we need whoever forms the next government to pass a Tax Dodging Bill. It will force companies to pay their fair share of tax in the UK and it will make it much harder for UK companies to avoid paying tax in the world's poorest countries too. And the billions of pounds it would raise could help fund the fight against poverty. Sign the petition and stop corporate tax dodging >> http://po.st/KzEioJ

Every day, millions of people like Augustin and Mohamed face disaster. They’re in the Democratic Republic of Congo where conflict has turned people’s lives upside down. But, worldwide, people are struggling to survive floods, drought, earthquakes, typhoons... And the number of people affected is growing. Fast. 

It’s why we’re launching our Strength to Survive Appeal - to help people prepare for disaster, survive when it happens and come back stronger than ever.

As part of The Climate Coalition’s exciting new campaign, we’re showing the love for the things and people we care about most. People like Shahida, who are most affected by climate change.

She lives in Gaibanda, Bangladesh, an area prone to flooding. The floods isolate communities, destroy crops and contaminate wells and food supplies. We’ve raised the land around Shahida’s house, so her family can cope when the water levels rise. Together, we can do more.

Show the Love for Shahida and give her a +1!

From providing seeds and tools to training farmers, we’re going all out to help the world’s poorest people beat hunger. Hunger is the reason we’re banging on about climate change too – unless we tackle it, more crops will fail.

By 2050 there could be 25 million more malnourished children under the age of five, due to climate change – the equivalent of all under-fives in the US and Canada combined. We can’t let this happen.

We believe in a world without hunger. SHARE this if you agree.

In rural Pakistan only one in three women has ever attended school, and this is keeping people in poverty. At the same time, the average net worth of parliamentarians in Pakistan is around $900,000. Many parliamentarians there don’t pay any taxes, but this money could be used to fund vital services including education. 

SHARE if you agree that it is unfair that while the wealth of a powerful minority grows, the poorest people are getting left behind.

Barbara lives in #Zambia, which has one of the world’s fastest growing economies. But like 75% of the population there, she is living in poverty.

While Barbara is struggling to collect water, grow food and support her family, multinational mining companies are making huge amounts of money in the same country. These companies are using international tax rules to avoid paying their fair share, which means families like Barbara’s miss out. 

+1 if you agree that everyone should be paying their fair share!

Last week we revealed that, unless things change, the richest 1% will own more than the rest of the world combined by 2016. To even it up we've got to make some big changes, starting with tax.

Right now, big companies can dodge billions in taxes. Meanwhile, the world's poorest countries lose out on funds that could pay for vital services like healthcare and education - crucial in tackling extreme poverty.

Ending tax dodging is just one way we can Even It Up – by stopping governments missing out on billions needed for vital services like education and healthcare.

The gap between the world’s richest and poorest people is widening, and while the wealth of the 1% grows greater, inequality threatens to undo much of the progress made over the past 20 years in tackling poverty.

As international business leaders gather at the World Economic Forum in Davos, we must call on them to tackle extreme inequality. It’s not too late to turn the tide. SHARE this if you agree.

Oxfam are working with partners to build and run Kontolloh Community Care Centre in Sierra Leone, a place where local people who have Ebola can be cared for. We are responsible for the provision of water and sanitation.  

The centre is being built in an area that has been badly affected by Ebola. This centre has been designed so that the relatives of patients can see and speak to them from a distance. This is important for tackling some of the fears families have about not knowing what is happening to their loved ones, and it should encourage more people to seek the treatment they need in health centres.

Do we really want to live in a world where the richest 1% own more wealth than the rest of us combined? It’s a question we’re posing because next year that’s exactly what could happen if current trends continue. When a handful of people have so much wealth and power – and millions of people struggle to get by, or even survive – it has to be time for change.

Six months have passed since the latest conflict began, leaving parts of #Gaza strewn with the rubble of destroyed homes.

 More than 100,000 people have lost their homes, and hospitals, schools, shops and factories have also been destroyed. Damage to water systems and power cuts of 18 hours a day have left hundreds of thousands of people without vital services.

The mammoth task of repairing and rebuilding is made even harder by the Israeli blockade, which severely restricts both goods and people moving in and out of Gaza.  

Oxfam are working with partners to repair damaged water systems, and we are providing families with food vouchers to ensure that they have enough to eat while supporting the local economy.

Almost five months have passed since the ceasefire began but the situation in #Gaza remains desperate. Vital reconstruction has barely begun, and the Israeli blockade remains firmly in place restricting goods and people from moving in and out of Gaza.

The situation has worsened during winter. In this photo children in Gaza are trying to keep warm as storm Huda hits the Middle East.

Oxfam are on standby to provide emergency aid if it is needed during the flooding that has been forecast.

More than 100,000 homes like this were damaged or destroyed during the recent conflict in Gaza.

The reconstruction of homes and vital services like hospitals and schools has been slow, partly because of the Israeli blockade which prevents goods and people from moving freely in and out of Gaza.

Oxfam are calling for the blockade of Gaza to be lifted, as it is trapping ordinary people in poverty by denying them the right to move, trade and live in dignity.

On Boxing Day it will be 10 years since the South Asia Tsunami hit. It hit 14 countries and affected 5 million people, killing an estimated 230,000 people and making 1.7 million homeless.

Thanks to the incredible generosity of the international community, we were able to help millions of people rebuild their lives between 2004 and 2009.

This is Roger, one of our ace drivers. The first step for our Oxfam buckets, on their way to Sierra Leone to help stop the spread of Ebola, is his lorry. It's a long trip, but a life-saving one.

We think Roger (and all of our lorry drivers) deserve a +1 for all their great work!

According to the World Bank, there are just over 1 billion people living in extreme poverty – on less than $1.25 a day. Meanwhile, the number of billionaires has more than doubled since the financial crisis, to 1,645 people. The numbers just don’t add up. Extreme inequality is no good for anyone. It’s in everyone’s interests to make the world a fairer place – search ‘Oxfam Even It Up’ to read our new report which includes proposals on how to do this.

In the meantime, please SHARE this post if you believe enough’s enough.

The gap between rich and poor people is getting bigger, most of us would agree. But not everyone knows how fast it’s happening. Over the last year, the richest 85 people saw their combined wealth grow by half a million dollars – a minute. Meanwhile, millions of people went without clean drinking water. Behind these shocking numbers are people – all with futures being lost to extreme inequality. It really is time to Even It Up.

Since the financial crisis, the number of billionaires worldwide has more than doubled. Meanwhile, at least one million women died in childbirth because of a lack of basic health care. 57 million children missed out on school. Millions of people went hungry... Unequal rules and systems mean that, while the super rich get richer, the poor really do get poorer. 

It’s why we’ve launched a major new campaign on inequality which we’ll be talking about all this week. Please SHARE if you agree it’s time to Even It Up.

Ebola doesn’t just kill men, women and children. It breaks hearts and devastates communities. 

Thousands of people have already lost loved ones – including Mabinti (pictured) from Freetown, Sierra Leone. “I’ve lost three of my relatives to Ebola. I am very terrified,” she says. “Still the disease is getting worse.” 

Oxfam is there, doing all we can to protect people at risk of catching Ebola. With your help, we’ve provided handwashing stands and trained community healthworkers who go door-to-door, explaining how to avoid infection, spot symptoms and seek treatment.

Making sure people at the frontline of Ebola can keep their hands clean is vital if we’re to help stop the spread. That makes soap powerful stuff. So we’re packing it into kits for Ebola treatment centres and for families at risk.

Together, we can help stop the spread.

Clean, safe water is vital in every emergency and Ebola’s no exception. Far from it in fact - with huge amounts needed for the disinfection of treatment centres and to keep health workers safe. Thankfully we’re experts in providing it.

To help stop the spread of Ebola, we must keep the water flowing.

Right now, people in Liberia – and other countries affected by Ebola – need more aid and more medical staff.
That’s why – as well as providing life-saving kit – we’ve joined a bunch of charities calling on governments worldwide to support health volunteers keen to join the fight against Ebola.

The UK Government's already encouraged NHS staff to volunteer. SHARE this if you believe more countries should follow suit.
