The silver space jacket some may recognize from the 1984 film 2010: The Year We Make Contact was donated by its owner to Oxfam.

The Global Oxfam Ambassador and award winning actress Helen Mirren said that funds raised from the sale of what became an iconic article of clothing will go directly towards helping the 10 million hungered people throughout the West African countries, including Niger, Chad and Mali.

Oxfam has headquarters based in Boston as well as a Policy & Campaigns office in Washington, DC, and seven regional offices around the world. They work in more than 90 countries worldwide.

The Brussels, Belgium office in particular works to increase Oxfam’s influence on European Union policies. They work to try to coordinate Oxfam’s work with European Institutions and in European capitals. The staff ensures that EU officials, European politicians, developing country embassies, and journalists are up-to-date on the latest Oxfam analysis and policy proposals.

Oxfam uses its international offices to campaign and correspond with countries worldwide.
