Honoring the IRC's slain Afghan staff members

Supporters have posted hundreds of messages on the International Rescue Committee’s social accounts expressing outrage and sympathy for our five colleagues killed earlier this week in Afghanistan.

Ahmad Momini (27), Mohammad Nazir (24), Mohammad Sharif (26), Wahidullah (24) and Habiburahman (25) were all dedicated humanitarians striving to rebuild their country. The IRC will honor their work every day as we continue to deliver life-saving assistance to those in need around the world.
