I found this on CNN this morning and my blood started to boil!!! One would think that humanitarian workers were properly screened. You would think that anyone working to help others in impoverished countries/regions would be of the highest caliber. I can’t even begin to explain the level of hatred and disgust I feel right now. And then people wonder why women think the majority of men are this way. I know they are not, but DAMN these disgusting excuses for men and human beings sure do give the male gender a bad name!

Read for yourself and tell me you don’t think humanitarian work should be left to women:

Charity: Aid workers raping, abusing children

By Stephanie Busari

LONDON, England (CNN) — Humanitarian aid workers and United Nation peacekeepers are sexually abusing small children in several war-ravaged and food-poor countries, a leading European charity has said.


Children like this 15-year-old girl have suffered abuse at the hands of some UN soldiers and aid workers.

Children as young as 6 have been forced to have sex with aid workers and peacekeepers in return for food and money, Save the Children UK said in a report released Tuesday.

After interviewing hundreds of children, the charity said it found instances of rape, child prostitution, pornography, indecent sexual assault and trafficking of children for sex.

“It is hard to imagine a more grotesque abuse of authority or flagrant violation of children’s rights,” Jasmine Whitbread, chief executive of Save the Children UK, said.

In the report, “No One To Turn To” a 15-year-old girl from Haiti told researchers: “My friends and I were walking by the National Palace one evening when we encountered a couple of humanitarian men. The men called us over and showed us their penises.

“They offered us 100 Haitian gourdes ($2.80) and some chocolate if we would suck them. I said, ‘No,’ but some of the girls did it and got the money.”

Save the Children says almost as shocking as the abuse itself, is the “chronic under-reporting” of the abuses. It believes that thousands more children around the world could be suffering in silence.

According to the charity, children told researchers they were too frightened to report the abuse, fearful that the abuser would come back to hurt them and that they would stop receiving aid from agencies, or even be punished by their family or community.

“People don’t report it because they are worried that the agency will stop working here, and we need them,” a teenage boy in southern Sudan told Save the Children.

The charity’s research was centered on Ivory Coast, southern Sudan and Haiti, but Save the Children said the perpetrators of sexual abuse of children could be found in every type of humanitarian organization at all levels.

Save the Children is calling for a global watchdog to tackle the problem and said it was working with the U.N. to establish local mechanisms that will allow victims to easily report abuse.

“We are glad that Save the Children continues to shed a light on this problem. It actually follows up on a report that we did in 2002 with Save the Children. I think every population in the world has to confront this problem of exploitation and abuse of children,” said Ron Redmond, chief spokesman for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Geneva, Switzerland.

“The United Nations has a zero-tolerance policy. It’s one that UNHCR takes very, very seriously. In refugee camps, we have implemented very strong reporting mechanisms so that refugees can come forward to report any abuses or alleged abuses.”

U.N. peacekeepers are among those accused of sexually abusing children, according to Save the Children UK.

This is just disgusting! Charity workers, U.N. Peacekeepers, Humanitarian workers are supposed to be trusted! These incidents appear to be commonplace occurances and I’m appalled that there seem to be more of this type of lowlife doing so-called humanitarian work than there are really good, well-meaning people.

You don’t want to know what I’m thinking needs to be done to these scumbags because my thoughts make the CIA’s torture techniques look like child’s play.

We need to scream out and demand that the U.N. and all charitable organizations traveling around the world offering aid start properly screening, properly checking backgrounds for character and criminal activities and most definitely enforcing a ZERO TOLERANCE for any form of abuse, but sexual abuse in particular. What is it with the male obsession with their penis? It’s disgusting how many men seem to think that women and children are put on this earth to satisfy their sexual wants. Yes that’s harsh and I sound like a man hater……I’m really not, but at times like this the anger takes over.

We need to start writing letters, demanding stringent oversight and above all, demanding a third-party with NO allegience to these agencies to act as the oversight committee to keep these law-breakers and pedophiles away from people, especially desperate, starving children.

  1. Seems to me if they want to stop this abuse every male should be screened with the “sex” test, the one they put male prisoners through when they go to prison for being a sexual deviant. If they get turned on by it, the don’t get hired. OR, if the agency is that hard up, the male is placed in chastity and he doesn’t get the key!

  2. And you are right, it is totally disgusting. Men can be pigs, oh wait, that’s insulting the pig…

  3. IT seems that we have forgotten not to long ago WOMEN were photographed abusing male Iraqie prisoners. Yes, it is ashame that these terrible things are happening to innocent defenseless children. I hope a solution to this problem is resolved. Oh yes, and remember all men are not created “EQUAL”….

  4. No we haven’t. The difference however is those women were NOT sexually molesting or raping CHILDREN….for that matter those women did not engage in sexual relations with those prisoners. Yes, they humiliated them, I don’t deny that or lessen the act. The abuse was uncalled for and should never have happened, I agree, and they were dealt with. Unfortunately the MEN who allowed all that to happen were not charged with anything.

    However, THIS post isn’t about abuse in general. This post is about Humanitarians sexually abusing CHILDREN!!!!

    Fully grown men, in a position of giving aid to others, incapable of controlling themselves and threatening children with loss of much needed aid unless they performed sexual acts with the men is the lowest form of being I can imagine and is the worst form of abuse.

  5. […] Jumps on Fat Bashing Bandwagon Considering the United Nations own peacekeeping forces is rife with pedophiles, I don’t think they are in any position to make any sort of decision about anything. I mean, […]
