Thanks to the generous support of many, Oxfam has been able to reach nearly 550,000 people affected by Typhoon Haiyan with assistance. We will continue to support the people of the Philippines on the road to recovery - rebuilding livelihoods, and reducing risk of future losses, caused by natural disasters. www.oxfam.org/haiyan
The numbers generated by the ongoing conflict in Syria are truly shocking. This Saturday, 9 December, will be the 1000th day of the conflict in Syria. In that time, over 100,000 people have lost their lives. More than 2 million Syrians have fled. The killing must stop. Time for a #ceasefire and the Geneva II peace talks. http://oxf.am/wTp
In response to the recent fighting in South Sudan, Oxfam has so far reached more than 110,000 people with water, health and sanitation equipment. Now that a #SouthSudan #ceasefire agreement signed, parties must honor the commitments: http://oxf.am/wQD
Recently, we sent a media team to the Philippines to film and photograph how OM is helping relief efforts. This photo from Tacloban, one of the areas hit hardest by the typhoon, really touched us. God, You are sovereign, and You bring hope in hopeless situations.
As demand for sugar grows, so does the rush for land to grow it on. And in countries like Brazil, farmers are being kicked off their land.

A new survey of more than 1500 people has given one of the clearest pictures yet of the harsh economic struggle facing refugees who have fled from Syria to Lebanon. The Lebanese people have shown incredible generosity in continuing to offer a safe refuge for people fleeing Syria, but with refugees now accounting for around 25% of the population, the pressures on the Lebanese job market in particular are showing. http://www.oxfam.org/en/policy/survey-livelihoods-syrian-refugees-lebanon
