Oxfam is just the tip of the iceberg

Oxfam is just the tip of the iceberg

International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt said Oxfam had agreed not to bid for further United Kingdom taxpayer funds until it met the British government's "high standards".

More than 1,000 direct debits to the charity were cancelled over the weekend and Mr Goldring said on Friday that the revelations could have a "substantial effect on public confidence, which would affect public donations".

Penny Mordaunt suggested Oxfam had "a long way to go before they can regain the trust of the British public".

Mark Goldring, chief executive of Oxfam GB, admitted the organization needed to reform, but said "the scale and the intensity of the attacks feels out of proportion to the level of culpability".

Oxfam have since announced that a comprehensive plan of action will be put into place to strengthen safeguarding systems across the organisation.

"Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu has supported Oxfam International's good work for many years, most recently as one of its global ambassadors", said a spokesperson from Tutu's office.

Oxfam allegedly covered up the scandal following reports that volunteers as young as 14 were facing sexual abuse, The Guardian added.

Oxfam International Executive Director Winnie Byanyima on Friday encouraged victims to come forward, "for justice to be done", saying she was "here for all the women who have been abused".

British aid organisation Oxfam faced fresh pressure on Tuesday after a former senior member of staff said her concerns about "a culture of sexual abuse" involving aid workers in some of the organisation's offices had been ignored.

"From the bottom of my heart, forgive us, forgive Oxfam", the Ugandan director said in her native tongue, Luganda.

His resignation comes following Oxfam's sex scandal, where Oxfam aid workers coerced women to have sex "in exchange for aid" in Haiti, 2011. "To punish Oxfam, I think, is wrong", he says.

"The hardest thing is that my family has rejected me", he said. With hindsight, we should have said more.

"Oxfam is an organisation which helps countless people".

"We have doubled the number of people to four in our dedicated safeguarding team and we are in the process of recruiting two extra staff", Oxfam said in a satement. There will be a set up of a global database of sex offenders who can not falsely re-offend other charitable trusts.

The prostitution allegations were not passed to Haitian authorities at the time of the inquiry, but Oxfam said it had now passed on the names of the men involved.
