Saving livesemergency response and preparedness: oxfam works with local partners and governments to save lives in emergencies. Responding to the covid-19 pandemic, we have worked with nearly 700 partners to reach over 14 million people in 68 countrieswith food, water, soap, cash assistance, and public information campaigns to prevent the spread of covid-19. Oxfam also works to strengthen local capacity to prepare for and respond to disasters. In the philippines we helped local leaders develop and implement disaster response plans. In central america, partners organized community commissions to identify risks, develop solutions, and empower local people, in particular women, to protect their communities against climate-related and other crises.
Campaigning for social justice: oxfam campaigns to change unjust policies that keep people trapped in poverty. We fight for equality, climate justice, gender justice, sustainable food systems, and human rights in emergencies. We challenge governments, corporations, and institutions to use their power to improve peoples' lives and shift power to local actors. Last year oxfam convened the people's vaccine alliance, bringing together dozens of civil society organizations to fight for a free, equitable covid-19 vaccine. We launched a people's vaccine letter with over 200 prominent signatories, published reports highlighting extreme vaccine inequity and hoarding by wealthy nations, and filed shareholder resolutions to pressure major pharmaceutical companies to make vaccines affordable and accessible to all.
Programs to overcome poverty and injustice: oxfam works for long-term solutions to end inequality poverty and injustice. We work alongside partners and provide grants and technical assistance to build fair economies, protect land and water rights, create equitable and sustainable food systems, and advance the rights and leadership of women and girls. In el salvador oxfam and our partners address gender inequality and gender-based violence through education and psychosocial care for youth and families, reaching 125,000 people in over 550 education centers last year.
