Oxfam UK chief Mark Goldring quits over Haiti sex scandal



The head of Oxfam in the UK is to step down over the Haiti prostitute scandal, the charity has said.
 
Mark Goldring will stand down as chief executive at the end of this year.
 
 
He said "the time is coming for a new leader" and after the "very public exposure of Oxfam's past failings, we have redoubled our efforts to ensure that Oxfam is a safe and respectful place for all who have contact with us".


The charity became embroiled in a scandal following allegations of sexual misconduct against some of its workers in Haiti.


It was made aware of allegations that some of its aid workers used prostitutes while they were working in the relief effort there, following a devastating earthquake in 2010.
