    Oxfam Haiti sex claims: Charity to meet government.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 12 Feb 2018, 12:28 pm

    Oxfam officials will try to convince the government it should keep its government funding - despite claims of sexual misconduct by its aid workers.

    The charity has been accused of concealing the findings of an inquiry into claims staff used prostitutes while delivering aid in Haiti in 2011.

    Oxfam denies a cover-up and officials will meet International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt later.

    The Charity Commission said it should be "frank" about what it revealed.

    Read more on this from The BBC HERE




    I wonder just how often this may have happened in the third world when other aid agencies have also had this kind of power.

    Also, it was alleged that Oxfam workers had been using underage locals for sex too.

    Has this been swept under the carpet as well ?

    I suspect that this kind of abuse has been going on in many of the poor and war-ravaged countries for some time.

    When powerful entities like Oxfam get onto the ground they can do virtually want they like.

    It is up to our watchdogs to catch them and make examples of them wherever this happens.

    Withdrawing our taxpayer subsidies from these companies will make them also think long and hard about this.

    Even Bishop Desmond Tutu has come down hard on these miscreants and resigned his Oxfam role.

    Now that it IS in the public domain it will be hard to shut a lid on it, even if some might want to.

    Read about Desmond Tutu's decision from Sky News HERE

    Oxfam was told of aid workers raping and sexually exploiting children more than a decade ago according to the Independent Newspaper.

    Read what I found here: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/oxfam-latest-sex-scandal-prostitution-rape-children-haiti-warned-2008-save-the-children-a8214781.html

    With this in mind, it seems that this has been going on for a very long time and it is just reaching us now.

    That is shocking Angie.

    I guess that now that Oxfam have been caught "at it" many more of the charities abroad may find themselves in the same trouble.

    All of this has been kept under wraps for far too long.

    Hmmmmm... Is that supposed to be funny ?

    Family Guy, which I watch avidly, is about humour, but the Godzilla/Haiti Segway was not funny at all, in my estimation.

    It was a comment on the fact that Haiti is a shithole as DT would say. The real story is not being told - it is not about prostitution (which imho is none of our business) but corruption.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiti

    Read the history - I was shocked

    Now that's more like it, instead of couching your point in a TV comedy show.

    I wholeheartedly agree with what you say in your later post.

    Aid has always come with strings attached. If it isn't the actual Aid workers, then it is the 'middle men' demanding sexual favours for food.

    Yes, and also it is true that many of the middle-level receivers of this aid often pocket the cash they get when they re-sell these materials that are supposed to go freely to the pointed end recipients.

    Sadly, whenever there is money floating around from these big charities in the third world some of it always gets "lost".

    There needs to be a much better oversight of what goes on when the big charities start to dish out OUR cash.
