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 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".
