Probably not in his terms and conditions... but they sacked him anyway. In fairness, if you're an aid worker in a disaster area - any hint of exploitation of the locals would not look good - irrespective of whether you're on or off duty.

Boycotting the charity seems OTT though...

Yes, for every suspect charity worker there's probably a hundred good ones, but people love a bit of sensationalism

I agree......Yet the Oxfam case is not about exploitation......no accusations or witnesses and a catogoric denial by the individual.
Trial by sensational media reports.......only.....to date.

The Irish charity case I was thinking of referred to Trocaire - and it occurred in Africa in 2016, was a local contractor hired by the NGO.

Tracked it down here...

Understand....after complaints were made....proper order if they took advantage of unfortunates.

Oxfam's former head of operations in Haiti has admitted to having a sexual relationship with a woman he helped in the aftermath of 2010's earthquake, but denied paying for sex with prostitutes or abusing minors.

Mr van Hauwermeiren said he never used prostitutes while co-ordinating the crisis relief effort in the Caribbean country. But he said he was "deeply ashamed" by aspects of his behaviour.

On his work in Haiti, he said: "Myself, indeed, I am not perfect, I am not a saint - a man of flesh and blood, and have made mistakes (not easy to admit), and I am deeply ashamed. I indeed admitted to investigators that I had three times intimate contact in my house.

"It was, in my opinion, a mature honourable lady, not an earthquake victim and no prostitute, whom I had met since I supported her young sister and very young mother with diapers and powdered milk. I never gave them money.
