Bayan News – United Nations officials in Afghanistan report the loss of 30 of their staff members over the past two years in Afghanistan.

Daniel Anders, the coordinator of humanitarian aid for the organization, tweeted on Saturday (August 19) the statistics regarding the loss of these employees during humanitarian activities.

According to Anders, those who lost their lives were vaccinators and deminers.

He stated that humanitarian staff members face constant risks in carrying out their duties, which is unacceptable.
