Oxfam Staff Sexual Exploitation

I lost faith in Oxfam when they started over pricing donated vinyl just because it made a come back, ten squids for an unplayable Stone album nearly stopped me making it the go to place for washed out 501's and high leg Doc Martins.

Catastrophe Tourist Sticks Cock in Vulnerable Local - big fat hairy surprise. Shouty ginger ICRC type who used to boast about all locals he'd shagged, regardless of their HIV status was the tip of the iceberg.

To be clear, the folks who go in and do the hard yards clearing munitions and making the place livable have my respect. It's the fluffy bunny types with the malfunctioning social conscience and burning need to have a go at rewriting history who can go fuck themselves with a chainsaw.

Nothing new here, I remember all the NGOs rocking about Kathmandu in the 80's in their big 4x4s, loud music late into the night from their compounds, obviously partying. Did I ever get an invite. No. The miserable gits!

Cancer Research is the biggest scam I looked through the window expecting to see a bunch of scientists working away in a laboratory type setting and there was just a couple of old biddys folding jumpers.
Yeah but at least they didn’t take advantage of your vulnerability by offering you money for sex ;-)

When I was back in Blighty for a while recently; the LHG got a relatively senior interim job at an international charity based out of UK (well known and considered to be very reputable). It was an eye opener.

The priority of the charity leadership appeared to be to maintain and increase itself and its staff, providing well-paid "jobs for the boys (and girls)" in the peer group of the people that worked for it. They ensured that their senior staff were looked after and remunerated at well above average rates, with very good terms and conditions regarding holiday leave and paid sick leave as well as generous provisions for travel and expenses. All senior staff members all appeared to have very similar socio-political views and reinforced each others stereotypes and views of society.

Yes, this charity actually does some good work, but it also seems to be a classic case of bureaucratic waste and poor funding decisions driven by a top-down socialist planning style and not a bottom up actual need-based system. While at the same time making sure that the management is very well looked after. This is self-servedly seen as essential, because of course these are the people that believe that they know what is best for society.

This is from what I understood when listening to the regular download from the LHG before her personal integrity overcame the material blandishments of the job and she left. Her view of the UK charity sector has been extremely tainted.

And it is this input, first hand preferably, second if you authenticate it, that makes Arrse relevant, apt , a force for good.
First hand experience of the inner workings?

Well you can have mine, 6 months of working on a contract that gave all of us trapped on the job a very clear insight into the mindset at work amongst the HO senior management in one of the big outfits.

Smug, selfish, condescending and with a very clear focus on maximising publicity and thus revenue raising over actual delivery.

We got on the circulation list for the in house bullshit and was very noticable that it tended to feature staff at clean distribution centres, offices, conferences, receptions, BBQ's and on personal jollies rather than those who were actually at the sharp end in dismal shitholes.

They just didn't seem to matter very much other than to feature in the external PR offerings of course.

The question surely is ,were they spending their own salary to pay for Prostitutes ,or were they paying from Oxfam expenses. The former is none of anyones buisness but the latter probably is if you contribute to Charities. So is this really a story of misappropriated funds or just a howl of moral outrage that employee's of a 'Christian Ethical Charity' might be having sex of whatever variety with poor and destitute 'victims' of disasters. In Post 1945 Berlin alledgedly you could have sex for the price of a cigarette so where is the difference it's happened through out time ,personally what Charity Employees do in their own time at their own expense is of little consequence.

Slightly difficult table as the regulations force Lloyds to declare their entire turnover as "income" whereas the Foundation money is from donations from the main fund.

"Four staff members were dismissed and three, including the country director, were allowed to resign before the end of the investigation, Oxfam said."
Presumably the Country Director gets to keep his charity and public funded Oxfam director level pension as a result.

So many good people doing the hard yards and giving up valuable time and volunteering to rattle collection tins in shopping centres or work in charity shops selling tat..... they must despair when they hear these stories.

No doubt Oxfam 'management' will release an internal memo to staff that it's all a huge misunderstanding so crack on folding jumpers...

Did anyone else get pissed off at the smug bitch interviewing the former big boss from Oxfam ? The poor old dear left Oxfam 5 years ago, how the f**k would she know what the f**k was going on now ?

Agree for the most part although there would appear to be concerns regarding some "participants",yet to be determined, may have been under age by our legal benchmarks. Now that's a different matter. Oxfam being potentially liable for staff doing rapey stuff (paid or not) is a toxic situation.
Early days but we will see how it shakes down I'm sure.
You just know the minute people get fired etc...there is summat nasty going on.

To me it simply points to the growing disconnect between lofty Western ideals, corporate style policies, political influencing aspirations and the murky realities of the crappy parts of the world.

When the two collide charities and NGO's in general can't cope with it so prefer to pretend it never happened.

Oxfam is probably better than some others but people need to be clear what their money is actually producing

It is no longer really just providing short term disaster or poverty relief as most people think but more and more driving a political agenda (and one that may sound familiar) in the talking shops of the world.

The blurb for their Director of "Influencing" amongst other things is quite revealing.

Total bollocks.

1. They were there on charity/taxpayers dime to help with disaster relief, not exploit the locals.
2. They exploited, allegedly,some underage girls.

Turns out the government, Oxfam,other NGOs, MSM and most sane people disagree with you.
