The Agency Coordinating Body for Afghan Relief and Development (ACBAR), representing 148 Afghan and International NGOs, condemns the ambush and killing of 3 staff of ACBAR member, CRS, and the wounding of 1 of their staff while driving back to Chaghcharan in Ghor province on 14th August.
As NGOs in Afghanistan, our mission is to provide support to all Afghans in need of humanitarian and development assistance, especially those who are poor and vulnerable. We repeat strongly that aid workers should not be a target and that all factions in Afghanistan should respect our neutrality.
Our condolences and prayers go to the families of our friends and colleagues in Ghor.
