LONDON – The deputy director of the British aid organization Oxfam is left following the fuss about sexual misconduct of professionals, particularly in Haiti.
Deputy director Penny Lawrence said Monday that “the organisation has failed adequately to act as a result of messages within Oxfam about sexual misconduct of employees.”
Lawrence said with her withdrawal the need to take responsibility. She was as programme director responsible for missions in Chad and Haiti in the time in which employees there are underage sex workers would have been hired.
Lawrence deplores the fact that sexual misconduct of a landenmissiechef in Chad and his staff already have been discussed at Oxfam, before moving to Haiti was sent after the catastrophic earthquake of 2010.
