Agency Coordinating Body for Afghan Relief & Development-PRESS RELEASE
Violence against aid workers must end!
So far this year, 8 staffs have been killed and 16 wounded during the first months of 2015 in Afghanistan, in several security incidents with different causes and actors involved. ACBAR calls on all actors, government, opposition, and independent, to actively refrain from hostile acts that cause injuries or death of aid workers.
The situation for Afghans, as well as for aid workers, remains precarious, but aid workers keep implementing projects for the Afghan people. Insecurity represents a major challenge in Afghanistan for civilians and aid workers.
