Oxfam whistleblower: Allegations of rape and sex in exchange for aid

Post by Argonheart_Po » Tue Feb 13, 2018 4:48 am

Allegations of rape, harassment and sex in exchange for aid handouts – just some of the damaging claims raised by a former Oxfam employee in an interview with Channel 4 News. And Oxfam’s Chief Executive Mark Goldring apologises for not acting fast enough when concerns were raised about Oxfam’s practices.
Tip of the iceberg.

Sounds like the problem isn’t the reporting system at all, but the failure of their HQ to take action on what’s been reported. I bet the head of the CEO will deservedly be rolling in the next couple days.

Perhaps the sexual assaults and trading food for blowjobs is the problem?

There's bad behavior anywhere. There should be a functioning system to swiftly deal with bad behavior. There obviously wasn't in Oxfam's case.

At least the money ended up with the people who need it, not in the pockets of local officials as is usually the case

Sexually abusing underage earthquake victims under the guise of being an aid worker is probably the worst thing a human being can do, but that's just me.

I would say it's even slightly worse than Hollywood and media creeps taking advantage of movie stars and well paid media types.

Considering the outrage machine generated by the latter, why the resistance against drawing attention to the former?

The prostitutes were under age? Are you sure?

That's what the news says, including the Guardian.

In any event, westerners fucking hookers in third world countries leaves a bad taste in my mouth for some reason. Especially AID workers. They shouldn't be touching the locals. They're supposed to be there to help, not exploit.

The news said, “some looked underage.”

I agree aid workers shouldn’t be fucking prostitutes and should be fired for it, but they aren’t priests, and I don’t get the moral outrage. “Not touching the locals” infantilises the whole population.

Shavenhead —- Do you think an aid worker in Joburg should never date a South African, ever?

If you are say, in a third world country in some capacity other than an AID worker and you strike up a relationship with say a middle class local who's in a position to not be exploited, then that's fine. But tossing pennies at someone who lives in a slum or a hut for cheap thrills is just not on.

Also, there's a vast chasm between Joburg and Port Au Prince or Ndjamena.

Rephrased as above. Locals in that context meaning the poverty or disaster stricken i.e. the ones they were sent to assist.

I agree with you generally. Ninety-percent of the staff in country are usually locals. Expats don’t usually do the frontline work for obvious reasons. I’d bet those doing the sex-for-food trade are national staff, a fact that doesn’t make it anymore acceptable.

Is this story about nationals/locals doing all of this, or westerners?

Westerners.

Shavenhead - Baba’s responees are disingenuous, designed to minimise. He is an aid-worker defending other aid-workers. This is a political event for him, not a moral one.

You’re only interested in things if you can weaponize them against the left. Otherwise, you’re completely incurious and amoral.

And I’m not an aid worker.

A good response to aid-workers like Baba trying to kick this steaming pile of shit under the carpet:

Will there be a 4th thread by Poo on this subject?

Stay tuned.

“Not touching the locals” infantilises the whole population.
I have a friend who's sister went into the Peace Corps and they sent her to Africa.

About a year later my friend told me his sister was leaving the Peace Corps and it was "her decision and the Peace Corps' decision."

I asked him "what happened, did she get knocked up by some black guy?"

He answer "Uh, . . . yeah".

Last I heard they were in Germany. They got married, he immigrated to the US and joined the army as a grunt, and after a while they decided to sent him to Officer Training School, last I heard he'd made Captain.
No subject on which I am called to speak is ever slighted, and if a moral lesson or a religious precept can be drawn from it, the opportunity is never allowed to pass unheeded. My constant aim is to elevate and instruct humanity.
