Sexual abuse scandal from British charity Oxfam
The British aid agency Oxfam employees have caused sexual abuse for money in needy women who survived the earthquake in Haiti.
Oxfam employees, one of Britain's biggest charities, were found to have money-for sexual exploitation in needy women who survived the earthquake in Haiti in 2010.
Upon the news published in the press, the British government announced that it would cut funding for institutions that conduct aid activities abroad and that do not comply with the rules.
British Development Minister Penny Mordaunt noted that the necessary steps will be taken in this regard, saying, "There is a tremendous betrayal of the people who are sent there for a mission and who needed to do their work."
Commenting on the news, Oxfam announced in 2011 that employees' immoral movements were "unacceptable".
British newspaper The Times wrote last week that high-level employees of Oxfam were abusing women in disadvantaged circumstances and being with them for money.
According to the investigation report that the Times had found, some of the victims of abuse reportedly were children.
Oxfam's government funding and donations are reported to have an annual income of £ 300 million.
Oxfam went to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, to help relief efforts after the earthquake in 2010 left 220,000 people dead 1.5 million people homeless. (ILKHA)
