Oxfam chief executive Mark Goldring has announced that he will step down at the end of the year, in the wake of the charity’s sexual abuse scandal involving victims of the 2010 Haiti earthquake.

“Following 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,” Goldring said.

“We are now laying strong foundations for recovery. I am personally totally committed to seeing this phase through,” he added.

Goldring had been facing “pressure to step down amid outcry in February”, when news of the sexual abuse scandal broke, The Independent reports.

Several aid workers, including Oxfam’s head of operations in Haiti in 2010, 68-year-old Roland van Hauwermeiren, were accused of hosting sex parties with prostitutes while working in the country.

“Intense criticism over the abuse led to the resignation of Oxfam’s then deputy chief executive, Penny Lawrence,” says The Guardian.
