The United Kingdom government halted the funding for Oxfam in the Democratic Republic of Congo after two staff members of the firm were suspended for allegations of sexual misconduct, bullying and abuse of power. “All organisations bidding for UK aid must meet the high standards of safeguarding required to keep the people they work with safe,” the Foreign Office (FCDO) said. The two employees are being investigated.
