Or as they are known by most of the world, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF)……..that great charity where medical types go around the world helping people that need their help and the rest of the world ignores…..places like Mali, South Sudan, etc.
But first I need to report that my medical procedure was a success…at least for now will know more next week when I go in for a follow-up….as long as I am writing about doctors……
Disturbing news has come to light about this charity……
Aid workers at charity Medecins Sans Frontieres used local prostitutes while working in Africa, whistleblowers have told the Victoria Derbyshire programme.
Female former employees said the behaviour was widespread.
One said a senior colleague said it was possible to barter medication in exchange for sex.
The charity said it does not tolerate “abuse, harassment or exploitation”. The use of prostitutes is banned by MSF under its strict code of conduct.
The women spoke anonymously for fear of being blacklisted by foreign aid agencies, among which there can be a large crossover of staff.
This is sad news……the UN has been plagued with similar problems……just sad that those there to help eventually take advantage of the people they are there to help.
