“Orgies While People Are Dying”: How Charity Oxfam Allowed Sex Abuse in Ailing Countries Like Haiti

Why does it take so long for these types of incidents to come to light.
Haiti 8-years?
Will Ebola financial mishandling take more then 5 to 8 years to come to light for Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia?  Possible 12-years or more?


Could an unbiased professional entity or organization be utilized to immediatly address issue to evaluate and monitor OXFAM, Save the Children, even the United Nations? YES. IT ALREADY EXISTS.


Oxfam has been hit with dozens more misconduct allegations in the days since The Times of London revealed Oxfam tried to cover up sex crimes by senior aid workers in Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake. On Tuesday, Oxfam’s leadership was questioned by British lawmakers, and apologized for its failure to report sexual misconduct to Haitian authorities. Prostitution is illegal in Haiti, but Oxfam refused to report the activity of its aid workers to Haitian police. Haiti has threatened to expel Oxfam from the country over the scandal. For more, we speak with Sean O’Neill, chief reporter at The Times newspaper in London, which broke the story of the scandal.

We also speak with Haitian-American novelist Edwidge Danticat and Taina Bien-Aimé, executive director of the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women.
