We work together with other Oxfam affiliates to increase our impact on development and humanitarian work.
Oxfam has been working in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region for over five decades and over the past four decades promoting gender equality and supporting women’s right to participate and be represented in governance and decision-making structures and processes.
