Only 32 years old, Bob Kitchen has worked with the International Rescue Committee in some of the most demanding and dangerous places in the world. Bob served as IRC country director in Afghanistan from 2009 until the end of April. He recently spoke with Ned Colt via Skype from Kabul about the successes and challenges of working in a country where conflict and kidnappings are a constant threat.
