Syria conflict: Women 'sexually exploited in return for aid'
BBC ^

Aid workers said the men would trade food and lifts for sexual favours.

Despite warnings about the abuse three years ago, a new report shows it is continuing in the south of the country.

UN agencies and charities said they had zero tolerance of exploitation and were not aware of any cases of abuse by partner organisations in the region.

Aid workers told the BBC that the exploitation is so widespread that some Syrian women are refusing to go to distribution centres because people would assume they had offered their bodies for the aid they brought home.

When I first moved to the remote rural Appalachian county where I live 37 years ago, that’s the way it was here. If a poor woman needed food stamps, Section 8 housing, or any type of welfare, she had to sleep with the sheriff, his brother, any of their friends. Same thing with any woman who wanted a county job.

That’s no way to treat family. You did say Appalachia. ;-)
