Over half the word more than three billion people live on less than $2.50 per day. At least 80 percent of humanity live on less than $10 a day. Few organizations dedicated themselves to helping to solve the aggressive nature of poverty.

Oxfam is one of them.

According to their website Oxfam is a global organization working to end the injustice of poverty. However, the world has taken pause due to behavior in Haiti during the earthquake relief effort.

During the 2010 earthquake relief effort in Haiti, dozens of executive and Oxfam employees are being accused of hiring prostitutes and relieving poverty one poor sex worker at a time. The Times of London released information linking senior aid workers to sex crimes and attempts to cover up sex crimes. On Tuesday British leadership questioned Oxfam’s executives about its failure to report sexual misconduct to Haitian authorities. Prostitution is illegal in Haiti and not only did the company's employees take part but no one informed the Haitian authorities. Haiti has since threatened to expel Oxfam workers from the country over the scandal.

The company has since apologized to British lawmakers and the nation state of Haiti for their involvement.

Nearly, 7,000 people have canceled their donations of Oxfam since the orgy scandal broke.
