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.

It's about time Government's around the globe got together and put an end to all this wanton violence, it's the people who always suffer in any conflict.

It's 2015 for God's sake, are we all just sleepwalking?

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

In the last 4 years, since the beginning of the Syrian crisis, 83% of the lights in Syria have gone out. Help us shine a light on Syria and call on world leaders to take action. #WithSyria

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.

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

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.

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.

*Texts cost £5 + standard network rate. By texting you consent to future telephone contact from Oxfam. Txt NOINFO to 70064 to stop future SMS

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."

Families like Nyota’s who work near the river, and drink from it, are at risk of getting cholera from the water. With your support we can help families like this who are facing disaster. They can be stronger than cholera. With your help we can continue to provide people with chlorine to purify the water, and we can teach families about the symptoms of cholera and what to do if they think they have it. Together, we can be stronger than disaster.

Text REBUILD to 70066 to donate £3.*

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.

In 2015, millions of families worldwide will face heartbreaking disaster. The lives of parents and children will be torn apart. Loved ones will be lost. Futures will be shattered. But with your support we can be there when it matters most. Together, we can be the difference between life and death when disaster strikes and we can help people come back stronger than ever.

+1 this if you're on board!

Right now, there are more than 73 million people struggling to survive disasters. That’s almost double the amount of people who needed our help ten years ago. We're facing more emergencies in the world than ever before - but we're determined to help people come back stronger. 

We can't prevent disasters - natural or otherwise, but, with your help, we can reduce the devastation they cause. SHARE this if you agree.

Obviously, you really care what I think... I block rude people--not worth the emotional investment... Oh well.
