OXFAM: BEWARE OF SCAMMERS SEEKING DONATIONS

Alison Kalotiti does not work with Oxfam

Oxfam wishes to inform communities of Efate that Alison Kalotiti does not work with Oxfam.

We were made aware in December 2017 that a man named Alison Kalotiti from Pango Village was visiting communities to the north and north-east of Efate, demanding money and other services such as accommodation at community bungalows and catering in the name of Oxfam. He was seeking contributions from community members of 10,000 Vatu each, promising that in return a poultry project would be donated by Oxfam.

Oxfam wishes to re-state in no uncertain terms that Alison Kalotiti does not work with Oxfam. Additionally, Oxfam does not have poultry, boat and other projects.

Oxfam advises communities and the people of Efate not to give money to any person claiming to work with Oxfam. Do not give money or provide services to Alison Kalotiti, as Oxfam has no association with him.

If you have given money to Alison Kalotiti, or if he has accessed any services that he did not pay for, we ask that you report the matter to the Police as soon as possible.

Oxfam has been working in Vanuatu since 1989 through national partners and we will continue to support the communities of Vanuatu to champion their rights and raise their voices on issues affecting their lives.

Should you wish to learn more about Oxfam’s work, please contact the Oxfam office on 25786. Alternatively, you may call 7315008 to learn more about this particular issue.
