Cease Fire Now

16 October 2023 | Danny Sriskandarajah

The unprecedented escalation of violence in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory has left many thousands dead and injured.

Our colleagues in Gaza have been bravely speaking out about what’s happening and sharing the heartbreaking human impact of the crisis. You can see their videos and listen to what they have to say here.

Oxfam condemns all attacks, violence and targeting of innocent Israeli and Palestinian civilians. We’re calling for an immediate ceasefire and the opening up of humanitarian corridors to enable the safe delivery of aid to those most in need.


As soon as it is safe to do so, the team will resume the work Oxfam is already known for in Gaza. This will include water, sanitation and hygiene, as well as food security.

To help us meet the extremely high level of humanitarian need, we’ve launched an appeal.
