Use of sex workers in Haiti : Head of Oxfam-Belgium says he’s deeply shockedFriday, 09 February 2018 19:09
According to the British newspaper, The Times, which broke the story, sex workers allegedly participated in orgies in apartments and hotels paid for by the NGO. Refuting the allegations, Declercq said “an audit showed that Oxfam money was not involved”. The six employees concerned either were dismissed or resigned. None of them still work for Oxfam.
Declercq recalled that Oxfam employees must conform to the NGO’s code of conduct. Since then, “we have also drawn up an action plan aimed at greater transparency,” he disclosed. “A contact point has been set up to denounce suspicious behaviour and we have support persons whom staff can contact when they need to.”
