A global crisis

The world is experiencing the worst refugee crisis since World War II. More than 65 million people have been forced to flee their homes because of violence, persecution and terrible conflict. In addition, millions more flee from natural disasters and poverty.

In 2015, Europe saw more than one million people reaching their borders trying to escape the terrible horror of war and violence, or a life of misery and deprivation. Many, however, risked their lives on dangerous journeys in search of security and protection.

And yet most displaced persons and their families remain in their own country or take refuge in crowded refugee camps in neighboring countries.

These are not refugees or migrants. It is about people.

Behind these huge figures that are almost impossible to understand are hidden painful stories of people who have seen their lives crumble because of causes beyond their control . They have lost their homes, jobs, and loved ones.

In their travels trying to escape, families often find themselves separated and parents are unable to locate their sons and daughters. Many have left everything behind, carrying with them only a few possessions or simply the clothes they wore.

In spite of all this, many people can not even consider the possibility of returning to their countries because it would be too dangerous.

Our values. Our legal obligations. Our responsibility.

Migration is not a threat that we must combat. It is a complex phenomenon that we have to manage.

Oxfam is helping hundreds of thousands of people who have been forced to leave their homes to survive worldwide , mainly in Africa, the Middle East and Europe. But this crisis is too serious so that no country or organization can solve it by itself. To protect the lives of displaced people, Governments around the world must fulfill their obligation and act jointly and responsibly.

However, the world's richest countries are being unable to help and protect these people in situations of grave vulnerability or to defend their fundamental human rights. Meanwhile, other poorer countries welcome the vast majority of the world's refugee population.

Rich countries can and should make a greater effort to help.

Make your voice count

Everyone has the right to be treated with dignity and respect. But when people move or migrate, they often find themselves in a situation of great vulnerability. Our Governments are responsible for ensuring their safety and protection and for meeting their basic needs for food, shelter and health care.

For this reason, Oxfam encourages you to join our raise the voice of people forced to flee and demand that governments take up their responsibilities and address this crisis.
