How your donations help

Oxfam Hong Kong is a worldwide development organisation that mobilises the power of people against poverty. In 2012, it set up its Macau office to further support the organisation’s poverty alleviation efforts.

There are 700 million people who earn less than USD1.90 a day. Life is hard for them, but thanks to donors in Hong Kong and Macau, Oxfam was able to support 910 projects in 45 countries in the year 2015/16. We uphold the values of transparency and accountability and make the best use of every dollar donated to build a world free of poverty.
