Oxfam Hong Kong began in 1976, when volunteers came together, opened second-hand shops, and raised funds for anti-poverty projects around the world.

Some of the first actions in the 1970s and 80s were to advocate for justice in the Vietnamese refugee crisis in Hong Kong, and to save lives in Ethiopia during the 1984 famine. To date, Oxfam Hong Kong has worked in 70 countries/states and has staff based in 10.

Oxfam Hong Kong is an independent international development and humanitarian organisation working against poverty and related injustice.Its work focuses on Southeast Asia and China, including Hong Kong as well as other parts of Asia and Africa.

Oxfam Hong Kong works with other members of Oxfam International on international campaigns and programmes supporting people’s right to development.
