This is what happens when an NGO is not diligent in their supervision of their country platforms. If it happens to one it might happen to others. Before making donations one has to study the situation and make an informed decision.

From an internal memo dated 2015:

We are now on track to register nine times the losses from fraud and theft this year versus 2014.  Already we are at about $2.4 million for 2015.

This does not include operational losses through errors, disallowances or budgeting oversights.

I know many of you are working to address this negative trend.  In some countries, bad employees have been arrested.  Lessons learned are being shared forthrightly; there will be more to come. 

I need everyone to be vigilant to issues of fraud and diversion through theft.  Let no one say we are hiding or underplaying this issue.

I need everyone to reassure their hard working staffs that we will not let the bad actions of a few spoil the efforts of the many.  Our ship isn’t sinking.  However, when frauds/thefts reach that amount, financial implications will begin to hit us all.

Please check with your (RD/C/leader) for any additional measures that might be specific to your responsibilities.

(Regional leaders are never put into question as to what is happening. The blame falls squarely on the country supervisors and directors.)
