British Aid department meets with Oxfam

Image result for British Aid department meets with OxfamBritish charity, Oxfam, is fighting to save its government funding after revelations about sexual misconduct by staff that worked in Haiti.

Senior managers were summoned to a meeting with aid minister, Penny Mordaunt, as a $44 million funding hangs in the balance.

The scandal broke last week when the Times newspaper reported that some of the charity’s staff had paid for sex with prostitutes in 2011.

Former international development minister, Andrew Mitchell, says Oxfam had reported misconduct to his department at the time, but did not specify what they were investigating.
