Oxfam

Relief programs in Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe
For emergency aid in response to the food crisis facing Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Oxfam distributed food and other items and provided support for the emergency water supply system, sanitation and other health-related activities.  In addition to alleviating immediate needs, Oxfam also sought to provide long-term solutions to prevent future food shortages. 

Oxfam was established in 1942 as the Oxford Committee for Famine Relief, created to address the needs of war refugees and displaced people. Today, Oxfam works internationally to address the needs of people living in poverty through long-term programs focusing on education, health, economic development and human rights.  The organization also undertakes projects in areas plagued by conflict and natural disasters.
