Oxfam GB  Oxfam's Film & Photography Team posting from around the world.

It is three years since the huge earthquake hit Nepal in 2015. Our support meant the people of Nepal didn't have to face the disaster alone.
Here, an Oxfam scheme gave jobs to local women to rebuild irrigation channels for the hillside fields where local communities grow rice, wheat, mustard, peas, cucumber and other vegetables that had been destroyed by landslides caused by the earthquake.

In the 3 years since, we have supported more than 619,000 people. Your support means we have been able to continue helping people rebuild their lives long after the tremors subsided and are helping people out of poverty every day.

It is three years since the huge earthquake hit Nepal in 2015. Our support meant the people of Nepal didn't have to face the disaster alone. Many more lives were saved because people were on the ground, trained and ready to get vital aid to those that needed it. Shekhou pictured here, delivering toilet slabs was among them.

In the 3 years since, we have supported more than 619,000 people. Your support means we have been able to continue helping people rebuild their lives long after the tremors subsided and are helping people out of poverty every day.

A Syrian refugee woman holds a harvest of cauliflower to be sold at market.

Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan is home to nearly 80,000 Syrian refugees. Seven years into the Syria crisis, many refugees in Jordan are still unable to find work and are reliant on limited aid. Finding work in in Jordan as a refugee is challenging, particularly for women.

In 2017, Oxfam opened four greenhouses in Za’atari. Around 45 Syrian women in the camp have developed new skills and networks through hands-on learning, and earn a small income by cultivating vegetables for sale in the nearby communities.

It’s a happy day for Kate and William, and we’re sending big congratulations their way.

We’re also celebrating as the future looks bright for Ramatu and her little one in Ghana - they've benefited from a solar-powered borehole which provides their family with safe, clean drinking water.

It's Earth Day Today! 🌎🌍🌏 ______________________________________________

Solar ☀️☀️☀️ powered bore holes are just one of the innovative ways we bring renewable energy into our projects.

Here Joseph and his wife Felicia take care of an Oxfam initiated solar powered borehole which irrigates the surrounding farmlands making it possible for farmers to work all year round.
Felicia told us: “Before the installation of this pump, especially in the months of May and June, there was real scarcity of water. You’d go to the borehole which is far away and sometimes you have to look for other sources, like hand dug wells, which are not very good." We are working with local partners in the Upper East Region of Ghana. Currently implementing CRAFS (Climate Resilient Agriculture and Food System) programme in a number of communities.

Christina, pictured here, was given tools and shown different techniques on how to make more effective compost for the maize that she grows. “I’m 23, I have 2 children, they are 2 and 5, a boy and a girl. I want them to go to school, to do well in school and get good jobs and live well"

Putting up a 45,000-litre water tank in East Aleppo is a challenge. But in the middle of so much devastation, this piece of emergency equipment is vital. It means that Ayham and his cousins are getting the clean water they need to stay healthy. With help from people like you, we make sure water tanks, equipment and engineers get to where they are most needed. Because clean water helps to beat poverty –and we are determined that no-one should be without it.

Florence works for Oxfam in Juba, South Sudan, where a brutal civil war has created a catastrophic humanitarian crisis. She says: “What is happening in my country is sad, but I keep working to make a difference and try to build a better future for the coming generations." As deadly water-borne diseases put vulnerable people in even more danger, Florence saves lives by handing out water treatment kits and showing people how good hygiene can help protect their families.
