Four years after an earthquake devastated Haiti, the country has made great progress in rebuilding. But many new houses fall short of safety standards.
UK charity Oxfam has revealed that three staff bullied a witness during a 2011 inquiry into sexual misconduct in Haiti. Its release of a formerly confidential report comes as it tries to rebuild trust after the scandal.
A newspaper report said Oxfam staff paid prostitutes for sex while on a mission to help 2010 earthquake victims. The British charity says it dismissed four employees following an internal investigation.
Haiti has revoked Oxfam GB's approval to operate in the country while its government investigates sexual misconduct allegations against the charity. They date back to the aftermath of Haiti's 2010 earthquake disaster.
Oxfam's head will meet with a British government official to discuss how to move forward following a sexual misconduct scandal. London has threatened to cut off funding to organizations that don't undertake reforms.
