Oxfam strives to end poverty around the world. The organization focuses on areas such as climate change, education, health care, gender and race, sustainable livelihood, and protection from violence and disasters. Oxfam receives funds from donors and the sale of second-hand items at its Oxfam shops. Oxfam GB began as the Oxford Committee for Famine Relief in 1942, originally set up to address food and medical supply shortages in Nazi-occupied Greece. The organization is now an affiliate within the larger Oxfam International group, founded in 1995, which also includes Oxfam organizations in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, Spain, the US, and elsewhere.
