Who we are

Welcome to Oxfam in the Philippines! Oxfam is an international non-governmental organization working with others to end poverty and suffering in close to 100 countries worldwide. If you want to hear great stories of poor women and men changing their lives for the better; or you want to lend a hand in our cool campaigns to tackle climate change, this is the site for you. Oxfam is all about, in the words of Mahatma Gandhi, “being that change.” Keep tabs on an exciting organization that believes change can happen. Now.

Our History

Oxfam is an international confederation of 17 organisations networked together in more than 94 countries, as part of a global movement for change, to build a future free from the injustice of poverty.

The name “Oxfam” comes from the Oxford Committee for Famine Relief, founded in Britain in 1942. The group campaigned for food supplies to be sent through an allied naval blockade to starving women and children in enemy-occupied Greece during the Second World War.

Since then, as well as becoming a world leader in the delivery of emergency relief, Oxfam implements long-term development programs in vulnerable communities. We support the campaigns of civil society to fix the global food system, end unfair trade rules, and to combat climate change.

    i am from lingga calamba laguna,
    our suffered because of typhoon ondoy and santi i glad to hear that organization helps our place but what so sad is hindi lahat ng nasalanta ng bagyo ay naabot ng inyong tulong
    bagaman di lingid sa aming mag taga rito na sobrnag dami ng ipinamahagi ninyong tulong,,, maraming nakinabang di nmn nasalanta ng bagyo o baha basta may kakilala sa DSWD at baranggay official ay syang nanagana sa ipinamagi ninyong tulong,, kahit po nakalista na at kabilang sa bibigyan ng tulong ay di pa din kami nabigyan dahil marami ang paulit ulit n nakuha ng stub n ipinamamahagi ninyo pinapalitan ang mga pangalan ng ibang nakalista upang mabigyan ang kanilang mga kamaganak at kaibigan n pawang malalakas sa kanila isa pa maraming di naman naapektuhan ng baha ang masnakinabang dito,,, kanina 5hrs akong pumila sa oxfam distribution of stub dahil sa pagkakaalam ko ay nakapag palista ako sa isa makakakuha ng inyong tulong pero umuwi akong malungkot dahil di tinawag ang pangalan ngunit alam ko nakalista ako isa sa makikinabang sa inyong tulong.. magaman nagpapasalamata ako dahil nakatutulong ang inyong organization sa mga nangangailangan kaso nakakalungkot lng dahil sa dami ng mga matakaw na opisyal ng gobyreno na syang lumalamon ng bagay na di naman dapat sa kanila….

    Taga Sto. Angel Sur Sta. Cruz, Laguna po kami. Lumubog po sa baha ang aming mga bahay noong bagyong Ondoy at Santi. Marami pong nasirang bahay. Napalista po kami sa second batch ng mga bibigyan ng mga materyales para sa mga nasirang bahay.
    First batch lang po ang nakakuha. May aasahan pa po ba ang mga nakalistang second batch? Nais lang po naming malinawan dahil nababalitaan namin na nakialam ang pulitiko at DSWD dito . Pakilinaw lang po.

    • Oxfam Pilipinas says:

      Hello Ms Luz, Ipinagbigay-alam ko na po ang inyong tanong sa aming coordinator at kayo po ay sasagutin sa mga susunod na araw. Paki-abangan na lang po ang sagot sa inyong e-mail at dito sa aming blog. Salamat, Glenn

    • Oxfam Pilipinas says:

      Hi Ms Luz,

      Una ay maraming salamat sa sulat nyo. Masaya kami sa Oxfam kapag nakakatangap ng mga sulat mula sa aming mga kasamahan sa komunidad. Isa itong magandang mekanismo para patuloy naming ma-monitor ang proseso ng pag-recover matapos ang pagsalantang dinanas natin sa bagyong Ondoy. Bilang pagsagot po sa inyong tanong:

      “Taga Sto. Angel Sur Sta. Cruz, Laguna po kami. Lumubog po sa baha ang aming mga bahay noong bagyong Ondoy at Santi. Marami pong nasirang bahay. Napalista po kami sa second batch ng mga bibigyan ng mga materyales para sa mga nasirang bahay.
      First batch lang po ang nakakuha. May aasahan pa po ba ang mga nakalistang second batch? Nais lang po naming malinawan dahil nababalitaan namin na nakialam ang pulitiko at DSWD dito . Pakilinaw lang po. ”

      Ikinalulungkot ko ang pagkasira ng inyong bahay at ang mas malungkot na balita na hindi kayo nakatanggap ng mga materyales upang ito ay ayusin.
      Gayunpaman, wala pong kaakibat na programa patungkol sa pagbibigay ng materyales para sa bahay ang Oxfam maging sa aming emergency response at kahit dito sa aming kasalukuyang exit project. Hindi po kami namigay ng kahit na anong materyales maliban sa pag-repair ng mga nasirang banyo sa mangilan-ngilang nating mga beneficiaries.

      Sa abot ng aking kaalaman pati na ng aking mga kasamahan, ang IOM kasama ng LGU ng Sta. Cruz ang namigay ng materyales para sa pag-repair ng bahay.

      Sana po ay nakatulong ang impormasyon na ito. Maraming salamat po.

    I am working for an NGO that includes Caraga as its area of operaiton. Our expertise is on Microfinance and Enterprise Development. Does Oxfam also support projects of these types? How can we access assistance from you for our women beenficiaries in the Caraga Region? Do you have Call for Proposal? When is the best time to apply for funding assistance?

    • Oxfam Pilipinas says:

      Hi Tara, Will pass on your message to our Mindanao staff. They will get back to you shortly. Cheers, Glenn
