Oxfam boss Mark Goldring 'sorry' over Haiti scandal

Oxfam chief apologises for ‘babies in cots’ comment Oxfam boss Mark Goldring 'sorry' over Haiti scandal

Britain and the European Union are both reviewing the money they give, while Goldring said that 7,000 individuals had cancelled regular donations to Oxfam over the last 10 days.

The report says that while Oxfam couldn't substantiate allegations of sex with minors, it also couldn't rule out that some of the prostitutes were underage. We murdered babies in their cots?.

The charity's embattled Chief Executive, Mark Goldring, apologized to lawmakers for its conduct in the aftermath of the 2010 Haiti natural disaster.

Oxfam had on Monday formally apologised to Haiti over the prostitution scandal rocking the aid charity, expressing its "shame" and vowing to do better as it handed over a damning internal report into the allegations. "We murdered babies in their cots?" I was thinking about the unbelievable work I have seen Oxfam do across the world.

Goldring also apologised over Oxfam's initial communication with the Charity Commission, which has been accused by the regulator of not explaining in full the seriousness of the situation in Haiti when Oxfam employees were reported to have been paying for prostitutes.

He denied there had been a cover-up, saying Oxfam had been trying to deliver a huge programme with 500 staff and his predecessors would have believed they were making the right decision at the time.

"I'm sure this is happening in Rohingya aid camps, I am sure it is happening round the world", she said.

Cleaning products cause lung damage comparable to heavy smoking
His suggestion is to develop cleaning products that can't be inhaled, or use simpler cleaning methods. Just 197 women in the study suggested they didn't clean, a much smaller number than the 1,512 men.

Mr Goldring told MPs that at the time of the original investigation, Oxfam issued a press release revealing its findings of "serious misconduct" involving bullying, intimidation and breaches of the charity's code of conduct - but did not mention sexual exploitation.

He said that Oxfam had spoken to as numerous women involved as it could trace, and none were under 18.

He revealed that 7,000 individuals had cancelled direct debits to the charity in the last 10 days, and said that of the 26 cases reported, 16 had taken place in Oxfam's worldwide programmes.

Oxfam earlier on Monday released the 2011 internal report documenting accusations against Roland Van Hauwermeiren, who ran the charity's operation in Haiti after the 2010 natural disaster and resigned in 2011.

Groups of young prostitutes were invited to sex parties which took place at homes and guest houses paid for by the charity, according to one source who claimed to have seen footage of an orgy with sex workers wearing Oxfam T-shirts.

Meanwhile, ministers have said Oxfam has agreed to stop bidding for United Kingdom government funding until it can show it meets the "high standards" required.
