    The code of conduct has now been changed. It wasn't specifically listed before. just following the local law, etc.

    I love the tone of voice of the interviewer here - which perfectly mimics the tone of voice in my own head..

    It is quite amazing that even in reporting the scandal, this oversight officer manages to ask for more funding - to support oversight, of course - something one would think could be accomplished by a simple note saying " you are fired" http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk...-a8208376.html

    Interesting article vis a vis the discussion on this board

    "You don't need to pay for prostitutes because the local NGOs are willing to engage their staff in it or they are willing to introduce their friends.




    "I don't think it can ever stop. There is this power imbalance between the ones providing the aid and the ones receiving it."  https://news.sky.com/story/oxfam-sca...viour-11250718

    Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black. I reference back to Post #62, the Haitian government needs to finally be held accountable.

    This sort of echoes some of the sentiments that we have seen on this very thread.
