Our commitment to the world’s most vulnerable

As Chief Executive of an international development organisation, recent reports on sexual abuse and exploitation carried out by employees at aid organisations have been incredibly difficult to read and watch.  They have left me feeling appalled and at times disillusioned.

Such terrible allegations will understandably overshadow the incredible work of the hundreds of thousands of aid agency employees and volunteers tackling poverty or helping people facing catastrophe.  Whether we invite it or not, aid organisations are held to a higher standard.
