Oxfam risked safety of children to protect their own reputation, Charity Commission report finds


Oxfam risked the safety of children to protect their own reputation, a Charity Commission report into the Haiti sex abuse scandal has found. 
In the first external investigation since it emerged that charity workers sexually exploited young girls and women following the Haiti earthquake, Oxfam has been criticised heavily for its procedures and response.
The Charity Commission reported: "It is the inquiry's view that Oxfam GB should not have taken the risk with the safety of minors."
The report also concluded that Oxfam's approach to disclosure was marred by a "desire to protect the charity's reputation and donor relationships".
Claims of sexual abuse were first published a year ago. The scandal prompted more than 7,000 people to cancel their donations to the charity, forcing Oxfam to make £16 million of cuts to various aid projects around the world.
Oxfam’s own internal investigation in 2011 resulted in the sacking of four people, with three others resigning.
However on Tuesday, the Charity Commission released its own findings and made a string of recommendations, pointing out the need for greater resource, more rigorous investigatory procedures, and senior oversight and accountability.
The 150-page report - which is unprecedented in length and detail for the watchdog - found that Oxfam had a culture of "tolerating poor behaviour" and concluded the charity "failed to meet promises made". 

It went on to say that Oxfam repeatedly fell below the expected standards and that it missed opportunities to stop the scandal, to which there was a "flawed response" Oxfam GB and Haiti 2011.  
Oxfam’s trustees and senior executives are expected to accept the recommendations following the charity’s own admission that its efforts in 2011 and immediately after "were insufficient" - especially "in the light of all of the information available to the Charity Commission in the course of this statutory inquiry".
The watchdog launched an inquiry in February 2018 after The Times revealed that three employees, including the charity’s Haiti country director, Roland van Hauwermeiren, resigned and four were sacked for gross misconduct in 2011 over allegations of sexual exploitation, bullying and intimidation, and the downloading of pornography.

The report found Oxfam dismissed early warnings that aid workers were sexually exploiting earthquake victims in Haiti.
Emails sent to Oxfam headquarters in Britain in 2011 claimed that some aid workers were having sex with women and girls - including minors - who were poverty-stricken and living in refugee camps after their homes had been destroyed by the earthquake.
Oxfam's internal investigation, which did not look at the allegations surrounding refugee camps, later concluded: "It cannot be ruled out that any of the prostitutes were under aged".

Following the 2010 earthquake, more than 200,000 people died and 1.5 million people were left homeless. The warning emails were discovered during the Charity Commission's statutory inquiry, which was set up last year.
Within three days of the newspaper first publishing the claims of sexual abuse in 2018, more than 1,200 people cancelled their direct debit donations to the charity.

The emails

The report found that Oxfam didn't adequately follow up whether victims of sexual misconduct in Haiti were minors, and didn't report allegations of child abuse by Oxfam GB staff in Haiti.
They also failed to take the risks to alleged victims seriously enough and dealt with staff members implicated in sexual misconduct in Haiti inconsistently, the report found.
Notably, the Charity Commission found, Oxfam appeared to treat senior staff more leniently than junior staff, and missed opportunities to identify early warnings of abuse.
The report said: "Oxfam GB's senior executive had to deal with two two emails dated 18 July 2011 and 20 August 2011. Both were said to be from a 13-year-old about herself and a 12-year-old girl and made different and further allegations of physical abuse and other misconduct involving Oxfam staff.
"The inquiry was informed that it was suspected by Oxfam GB at the time, but not then proven, that they were not genuine. 

"The inquiry's finding is that taking into consideration the seriousness of the allegations made in those emails, as well as the clear risks to the safety and security of those minors if the allegations were true, Oxfam GB should have tried harder and taken more steps at the time to identify the source of the concerns and followed up the allegations and concerns, notwithstanding they suspected them to be false."
This shortcoming has been acknowledged by the current Oxfam GB chair who, according to the report, said: "Oxfam did not adequately investigate the allegations, received in an email dated 18 July 2011, that minors were being sexually abused by Oxfam employees, nor did it report these." 

Oxfam warning

The Charity Commission said some of the charity's failings and shortcomings  amounted to mismanagement, prompting the regulator to issue Oxfam GB with an  official warning. 
This official warning will stay on the charity's corporate record. 
The director of leadership has also been given an order by the Charity Commission to take certain actions to implement the recommendations laid out in the report. 

Six hundred children allegedly abused by charity workers

In October, the Charity Commission revealed that 600 children had  allegedly been abused or "harmed" by charity workers.

The watchdog said that between February and September 2018, charities reported 2,114 cases of serious abuse, an increase of a third on the whole of the previous year.
It added that of the incidents where the alleged victims could be identified, 583 involved children and 395 involved adults. Oxfam was accused of covering up claims that staff used prostitutes while delivering aid to disaster-stricken Haiti in 2012.
The watchdog raised concerns that despite the increase in cases of serious abuse referred to its task force, many incidents may still be going unreported.

Talking at the time, Sarah Atkinson, Director of Policy at the Charity Commission, said: "The public rightly expect charities to demonstrate the highest standards of ethical behaviour and attitude.
"That includes taking action when something has gone badly wrong, or when there's been a near miss. Making a serious incident report to the Commission is not in itself an admission of wrongdoing or failure.
"Quite the reverse: it demonstrates that a charity is responding properly to incident or concern. So we welcome the increase in reporting by some charities, especially international aid charities... But we're not convinced that we're seeing everything we should be. Working with charities, we need to bring about a culture change on reporting to ensure charities are safe places, better able to make a difference to people's lives."

The Charity Commission also conducted a "deep dive" review of 5,500 historic allegations dating back to 2014. It said in October that based on the review there are "no historic cases giving rise to serious or urgent concerns".

Reaction to Charity Commission report

Today’s report by the Charity Commission was due for publication in December but has been delayed by more than six months.
Following publication of the report today, Alison Talbot, partner and head of national charities at the law firm, Winckworth Sherwood, on behalf of former Oxfam GB trustees and senior executives said that the watchdog’s report highlighted the "seriousness and complexity of safeguarding issues facing Oxfam and other charities working in the aid sector".
She added: "We hope that its findings will contribute to ongoing improvements in how Oxfam and the sector carry out their vital work to prevent abuse of staff, members of communities and beneficiaries."
"As trustees and senior executives, those of us then in office were appalled when in 2011 we found out about the behaviour of some of Oxfam’s staff posted to Haiti. At the time, Oxfam was delivering water to half a million people in Haiti. These members of staff let Oxfam, and our beneficiaries, down badly. We apologise to all those affected."

We have a local hospice charity which I have a connection with (not financial).

I find it hard to believe how the CEO can push all the (sometimes heroic) local fundraising knowing that the first £200,000 each year goes to pay for his services.

It is a bizarre concept.

Charity management is a lucrative career now.

Re: the WaterAid advert where we see children drinking dirty water full of parasites that could kill them.

Why can't they drink the same water as their parents?

How have the parents successfully grown up if they're also drinking the dirty water that's full of parasites?

And why don't the fathers work out either that you can live closer to the water, so the tiny child does not have to spend 15 hours a day schlepping water, OR work out that you could dig a channel, or invent a pipe.
Or even – invent the wheel, and make a little trolley . . .
But it is not PC to observe that these people do not yet have the wheel, and seem not to understand the concept of gravity.

If you want a really depressing but strangely honest account of the way in which Western Aid is a total waste of time, because the people are ineducable, read 
https://itad.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/MV-Eval-FINAL-report-for-website.pdf

Meanwhile the little girl,  Aisha, who appears so often, but never grows up, still has beautifully braided hair, which her mother no doubt spends hours a week doing.  And it is good to see that they use plastic buckets and containers, helpfully provided by the West, and wear old Man U shirts, kindly donated by Oxfam.

https://inews.co.uk/opinion/oxfam-charities-commission-report-prostitute-dehumanise/
The Charity Commission’s report into allegations of sexual “misconduct” by Oxfam bosses and workers in Haiti, among other safeguarding issues at the charity, pulls no punches.
How could it? “Misconduct” in this case refers to allegations of criminally abusive behaviour including the statutory rape of girls as young as 12.
It has become standard for the girls and women at the heart of this story to be referred to as “prostitutes”. This doesn’t stop with the Oxfam debacle, either. Girls and women in sexual scandals, abusive or otherwise, are routinely referred to as prostitutes. The BBC, in its coverage of the Charity Commission report, even refers to “young prostitutes
‘Oxfam is by no means alone in being part of a skewed and biased global power dynamic’
What does the phrase “young prostitute” mean? Under-age prostitute? In reports that don’t discount the involvement of people as young as 12, everyone should be more careful. Why is it so hard for people to comprehend that giving money to a child in exchange for sex does not legitimise her rape or transform her into a sex worker? Why does the term “child prostitute” remain so perennially popular when it is such a disgusting oxymoron? The answer, as ever with such matters, stares us in the face.
In the eyes of the world, a prostitute solicits sex. Not money, like a greengrocer does, or a plumber. Somehow, the money is just an added extra that the prostitute manages to get along with the sex that she has dangled before a reluctant fool who cannot resist.
Much has been made of the fact that Oxfam seems to have sought to protect itself and its donations by hushing up the brewing scandal in Haiti, which happened in the wake of the 2010 earthquake. Less has been made of the fact that repeated emphasis on “prostitutes” in this story can be viewed as a psychological attack on girls who have allegedly already been physically attacked.
The use of the word, in general, protects men from responsibility for their own behaviour. That’s what the word “prostitute” exists to do. That’s how its meaning works. No one else is really involved in a transaction with a prostitute. She prostitutes herself.
So, once somebody has been categorised as a prostitute, even a child, she is complaining about things she has done to herself. At Oxfam, accusations of sexual abuse by a 13-year-old girl on behalf of her and another 12-year-old girl were not believed. The idea of them as prostitutes – particularly in this case, in which a child described herself as one – is virtually the only thing that is deemed to be credible. It’s easy to dismiss the accusations of a prostitute.
In 2011, four Oxfam employees were sacked and three others resigned, including county director Roland van Hauwermeiren. It wasn’t until last year that it was revealed that they lost their jobs for “using prostitutes” Whether any of the girls were underage has never been established.
It has since emerged that problems with sexually inappropriate behaviour were by no means limited to Haiti. Sixteen serious incidents involving under-18 volunteers at UK charity shops were mentioned in the report. Staggering. You’d imagine that your child was safe, working at an Oxfam charity shop.
It’s such a sick joke, the way that, again and again, as stories of serial sexual exploitation emerge, at home and abroad, in deprived communities and the wealthiest ones in the world, females have to roll their eyes and suggest that maybe females are not listened to. The fact that this has to be said, anew, time after time, only proves the point. Anyway, even if there is a danger that a woman might be listened to, she can always be labelled a prostitute. Women who speak out on a public platform become used to being called whores – or too ugly to be whores.
Oxfam is by no means alone in being part of a skewed and biased global power dynamic, in which those powerful enough to be able to present themselves as victims are accommodated as much as they can be, while the actual victims do not have enough power to make themselves heard at all.
But Oxfam could surely have been expected to defy this corrosive culture, instead of doing its best to perpetuate it. I have heard about no Oxfam worker who has been charged with a crime. I have heard about no victim who has been compensated. These are the actions that make a difference, that bring clarity to the seemingly difficult question of who is perpetrator and who is victim.
Instead, the charity is now training staff to understand that they must not sexually exploit people that they are supposed to be helping. It is described as  “basic safeguarding training” and one can only comment that “basic” is the mot juste. What sort of a  world requires people to be trained in not committing the major,  life-changing crimes of interpersonal exploitation, child abuse and sexual violence? 
This one.

I wonder why the father doesn't go to collect the water? it would be faster for him and the water wouldn't feel so heavy either.

But your observations are spot on as always...especially Aisha who never grows up.

Some thoughts from last year.


Re: WaterAid: Comments and feedback
Dear Jade,
Thank you for your reply, and for setting out the broad areas of your work.
I believe however that my last sentence is still valid.
 
The administrative costs of collecting £3 are simply not worth the effort.
It would take over 3,500 such donations merely to pay the salary of your CEO
and when we look at your entire staff costs of £ 20.3m the figures become ridiculous.
 
I also note your "pledge to advocate for universal access to clean water by 2030" 
 
Whether there IS enough water to do this is an entirely different matter, given that the 
UN expects world population to rise from the current 7.3bn to 8.5 bn.
Clearly there are other issues to be addressed, perhaps by other people.


Sincerely
Peter Mac

Dear Peter,
 
Thank you very much for your email and for expressing your concerns.
 
The images in our adverts are the daily reality for some of the world's poorest people, including children. It's vital that we raise awareness of this appalling situation which affects roughly one tenth of the world's entire population. 
 
In many of the communities we work with, families split the duties necessary to survive. Traditionally, men will earn the family's income through agricultural or manual work: women will collect water, cook and look after children.
 
Providing a local source of clean water can drastically reduce the amount of time women and children need to spend collecting water, and vastly improve their health. It can also open up opportunities for women to earn an income themselves, and for children to attend school.
 
We regularly train women in communities how to maintain and repair their water and toilet technologies, and how to create a management board for them. Providing women with applicable skills and responsibilities can help towards gender equality and the realisation of their rights.
 
Rest assured that all of the communities featured in our television appeals are part of our planned work and will have access to clean water and improved exertion of their human rights very soon.
 
Thank you once again for sharing your concerns. I do hope you find the information useful.
 
Best wishes,
Jade

 Message: Yet again - you tug the heartstrings with the advert of the little girl drinking dirty water - but you NEVER tell us what the mother and father are drinking, or why the father and the elder siblings are not digging a cess pit, or a well, or a water channel, or inventing the water pipe, or working out what Boy Scouts and other cultures across the world are taught to do to purify water. £3 is not going to fix it.

I like to bug chuggers and ask interesting questions, i am mean like that.
I ask how much they are getting paid and where the money comes from (they are obliged to answer)
With the water aid bunch i like to ask wwhat they do and they say dig wells or similar, insert pipes which go into the water table and hay presto clean water.
My next question is always this:

Given that many of the countries have droughts and/or little rain, you dig  holes and insert pipes into the water table to provide clean water, what will happen given their currant climate, when the water table is emptied and no more water is available?

They never have an answer to that.

They either um and ah or suddenly get distracted by a fellow chugger (secret signs for help?) or an unsuspecting, read gullible, person who may be persuaded to cough up.

if they don't get much rain then the water table doesn't get refilled and eventually the ground may even subside causing more problems.

As with everything, it seems to be measures for the short term and bugger the long term, that is someone else's problem.

Climate change is not man made, we are just 10,000 years out of an ice age, not even a blink of the eye in Earth times (out of 4.5 billion years)
We aren't even that far out of a mini ice age, when even the Thames froze up (It has been conventionally defined as a period extending from the 16th to the 19th centuries,but some experts prefer an alternative time span from about 1300 to about 1850)
Looking at current solar activity as well as the usual 11 year cycle of sun spots, there are also other cycles which have been discovered.
Solar activity is coming to a minimum regarding sunspot activity which can have an effect on climate an example being it will cool the Earth perhaps akin to another mini ice age global cooling

What will we do given that the sun is gradually expanding and at one point will become a red giant engulfing Mercury, Mars and probably Earth before shrinking back to the small embers of a white dwarf?
 The Goldilocks zone will move perhaps allowing planets further out such as Jupiter,  Saturn and Neptune to develop life if it doesn't exist in some form already.

The Earth will warm and freeze cyclically as it has done for the last 4.5 billion years going from molten to hot to a complete snowball and back to temperate back to hot and cold and it will continue to do so until we get fried by the sun assuming we don't get wiped out by asteroids, comets, man made annihilation, mother nature such as volcanoes and earthquakes.
At the moment all it will take is a massive volcanic eruption such as Yellowstone going boom or a couple of volcanoes going boom at the same time and for a longer period of time pumping all those greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
I wonder what the charities will do then?
Now that would be an interesting conversation to have  he he big grin

They did exactly that in India many years ago. Put pipes down and little pumps on the surface.
The water table dropped, so the roots of their plants could not longer reach it, and everything died.

And then gradually more saline water either rises from lower down, where the fresh water had been 'floating' on top of it, or actually begins to seep in from deep beneath the sea, depending on the geology.
Which makes the resulting desert not only dry, but now poisoned for all time.

But they don't tell you that in the adverts.

At the root of every one of the world's problems, Climate change, global warming, pollution, plastic in the oceans, lack of clean water, oil, war, famine, plague, civil unrest . . ..  is over-population.


But almost nobody will admit that.

Strangely Gamble, who we might have expected to be standing up for the children who were abused, raped, and violated in various ways has turned out to pretend it didn't really matter in the scale of things.

Amoungst all the negativity abt @oxfamgb & past failings it is important to remember the thousands of staff & vols who continue to do good work, often in challenging places. What happened let everyone down but they’re now on an improvement journey that will help the entire sector

to which someone not a million miles away tweeted
Strange that a man devoted to stopping the abuse of children is not swarming all over OXFAM and their computer systems and the lap tops of every one of their staff across the entire world rooting out evil -
instead of which he seems to be an Apologist ? ? ?

A former police chief who conducted an inquiry into Oxfam after the Haiti scandal defied legal advice that would have limited criticism of the charity’s former executives.

Jim Gamble, the former head of a unit that investigated child exploitation, was brought in by the charity after The Times revealed that it had covered up sexual exploitation by aid workers installing water supplies in 2011. Mr Gamble insisted on looking at Oxfam’s record on safeguarding and was highly critical of what he found.

It has now emerged that a judge appointed to oversee his inquiry said this went beyond its scope. In an introduction to a final report yesterday, Kate Gallafent, QC, a deputy High Court judge, said some of the findings “exceed the scope of…

More and more of us are not giving to these charities.   Money for old rope.  It's disgraceful what goes on across the world against the vulnerable in society and yet theseso called  do-gooders go to any lengths to try and cover it all up.

Smug gits who like to say that they work for a charity and only want to help blah blah.   Yet we see that many like helping themselves.

These charity "big wigs" and public sector "big wigs" should not be paid more than their local MP.  In fact it should not be more than 50 grand imo and expenses should be for basic level travel, food and accommodation.   Going out to help the poor children who do not have drinkable water whilst they stay in luxurious hotels.

It is pathetic.

Funnily enough I was talking about this subject last week to a very old timer and he said that the children in these adverts are probably now as old as he is but without the snotty noses with flies all over their faces we used to see.  big grin

Time for change not only in politics but throughout society.

Jimmy two flags deserves his own photo gallery.

How to dress to be all things to all men.

How to tweet to be everyone's friend and no-ones.

How to pretend to be retired.

How to be shackled to the establishment.

I sometimes feel sorry for him.

Unlike the podium and the flags of UK and USA, Jim is now sitting on a leather, brass buttoned chair wearing an open-necked shirt, a smart jacket....and are those jeans????

What a photoshoot.

Kate and Gerry McCann could give him a few tips. They were introduced to the art of photoshoots.

Variations of the forename "James' are beginning to concern me.
