Foreign aid workers shy away from Afghanistan as violence surges

Afghan police inspect the scene of a kidnapping by armed gunmen of a German female aid worker from a vehicle at the entrance to the office of German development agency GIZ in Kabul on August 17, 2015Afghanistan was once a magnet for foreign aid workers but surging violence has left NGOs struggling to recruit staff and restricted their ability to deliver crucial aid to the country’s vulnerable. Plagued by decades of war and natural disasters such as last month’s earthquake, which killed more than 120 people in the country and left thousands homeless, up until around 2009 Afghanistan was considered a risky but rewarding post for humanitarian workers. Posts now remain “empty for a long time” compared to a decade ago, said Elise, of France’s Acted NGO in Kabul, who declined to provide a last name.
