Oxfam criticised by charity watchdog over Haiti sex claims

When it emerged last year that Oxfam staff were accused of sexually abusing the victims of the Haiti earthquake, 7,000 people cancelled their regular donations to the charity.

After an internal inquiry, Oxfam sacked four people and three resigned.

Today, the Charity Commission severely criticised Oxfam’s handling of the whole affair, saying it had put the safety of children at risk to protect its reputation.
