Maureen Khomba from Malawi has received a cow thanks to Oxfam supporters. As well as providing milk for her family, including her six children, the cow also gives her milk to sell to earn some extra income for her family."I sell up to 16 litres of milk a day... I believe that my children have the prospect of a bright future because I manage to send them to school because of the money that I earn from selling milk", Maureen says.

What your donation could do:

Oxfam provides clean water in flood-hit Pakistan

Oxfam provides clean water in flood-hit Pakistan


Oxfam launches a rapid relief effort to reach almost 400,000 people with clean water, sanitation kits and hygiene supplies.

The international agency is trucking water and installing tanks to help prevent the spread of water-borne diseases amongst the estimated 1 million people affected.

Oxfam’s Pakistan Director Neva Khan said:”This is the worst flooding in living memory and it’s likely to get worse as rivers and dams reach dangerous levels. Whole villages have been swept away and villages south of the devastated area in Sindh may be hit in the coming days.

“Huge swathes of the country are under an ocean of contaminated water. The risk of water-borne disease is high if we do not act fast. We are going to be providing hundreds of thousands of people with clean water and building emergency toilets. We are moving fast with supplies we had ready for such an emergency in-country.”

Oxfam is appealing for $US6 million to help people get through the immediate days and weeks and to boost recovery over the long-term. The agency is also planning to provide hygiene kits to help people who have lost everything in the floods, as well cooked food and cash for work.

Khan said ”Our staff and partners have years of experience providing relief in the most difficult emergencies and we are already there working round the clock to reach those cut off from help.”
