Where the UN creates footprint reports of child rape and molestation rise. There are many documented cases of UN peacekeepers sexually abusing children in the area they are supposed to protect. The peacekeepers typically lure the children in and give them small sums of money, candy, or food so that they can claim it is child prostitution as opposed to a crime. 

To make matters worse the top brass at the UN refused to fully acknowledge that this was going on. Doing this or condemning these actions was off the table for the UN because they thought it would discourage nations from joining the peacekeeping forces.
