Oxfam boss says the charity has been 'savaged… out of proportion'


"What happened in Haiti and afterwards is a stain on Oxfam that will shame us for years, and rightly so", said Winnie Byanyima, executive director of Oxfam International.

Earlier this week at the NME Awards, Eavis' father, Michael, told the Press Association: "We've raised millions through the years with Oxfam - six million quid and everyone's said what a wonderful charity they are and we still support them".

"He took advantage of me and he took advantage of the situation", she told the Daily Mail.

She also said van Hauwermeiren helped her by giving her nappies, milk and money for her child. "It was, in my opinion, a mature honourable lady, not an natural disaster victim and no prostitute, whom I met since I supported her young sister and very young mother with diapers and powdered milk".

There is also talk of Oxfam losing some of its funding; the organization has already agreed to stop bidding for government funding within the UK.

In response, the military said one of its tanks struck an observation post in the southern Gaza Strip. "We will respond appropriately".

The government has made three demands of Oxfam: that it produce a plan on how to deal with any forthcoming allegations, that it report any staff members involved in the Haiti scandal and that it fully cooperate with the Haitian authorities.

"This review marks the beginning of change for Oxfam as an global organisation - Oxfam Ireland is 100% committed to playing our part and to working with others in government and across the sector to implement urgent reforms that enable us to do more and do better for the world's poorest".
