Oxfam Faces Fresh Child Sex Abuse, 'Sex For Aid' Accusations

Oxfam Faces Fresh Child Sex Abuse, 'Sex For Aid' Accusations

Scandal-hit British charity Oxfam was reeling Tuesday after fresh claims of sexual assault and rape, this time between aid workers in South Sudan.

She accused senior managers of failing to act, heaping pressure on chief executive Mark Goldring just hours after his deputy resigned over a scandal involving aid workers’ use of prostitutes in Haiti.

Seven percent of staff in South Sudan — four people — witnessed or experienced rape or attempted rape involving colleagues.

Oxfam has been battling accusations it covered up a scandal involving its aid workers in Haiti, which has put government funding at risk and threatens its global reputation.

It has denied covering up misconduct allegations against staff members accused of using prostitutes in Haiti following a devastating 2010 earthquake, but admits it could have been more transparent.
