Do It For Oxfam

Hello ,

Do you already hear the starting line calling ?
Thanks to a festive program, Oxfam Peacewalker can guarantee some magical moments to the 120 teams.

Where are the donations ?
We have heard this question many times in the past months. It is possible to donate in two different ways: via the team page on our internet site or via a standard transfer with a specific communication. In the first case, the donations can be seen immediately; in the second case it takes some time for them to appear as they have to be uploaded manually on the team page. We have to encode many donations with erroneous or incomplete communications and these require manual correction which slows down putting them on line. This Wednesday 19 May the donations will be updated to cover up to 30 April inclusive. From next Monday the donations for the month of May will follow.
Rest assured that every donation will come to us and will appear on the right team page.
If any donations do not appear on line after the dates given above, please let us know and include the IBAN number, the date of the donation, the amount donated and the name of the donator.
As the migration of our databases generated a delay in displaying donations on the team pages, we are extending the fundraising period until 31 May inclusive so that you may collect the required 750€. So  you may take part on 19 May even if you have not already raised 750€. We will simply ask you to sign a promise to pay the required amount.
As a reminder it is possible to make a donation at any time, even after the event is over.
Thank you for your patience and for your trust!

Put yourself in the place of a refugee

For this 2018 edition, a project led by Oxfam-Solidarity with the refugees in Western Sahara will be honored. In practice, the participants of Oxfam Peacewalker will receive the identity card of a Sahrawi refugee at  the same time as they will obtain their bib. Walkers will get acquainted with their life story during the walk. A way to bring to light this crisis that the media slightly speak.
