When a suicide bomber took the life of CCF employee Mohamad Shar in Afghanistan on Nov. 30, the aftershock was felt far beyond CCF headquarters.
On Dec 8, Anne Goddard, CCF President and CEO received a letter from Samuel M. Witten, acting assistant secretary for the United States Department of State Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, expressing his deepest condolences.
“We at the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration are profoundly appreciative of CCF personnel who do vital yet often dangerous work in Afghanistan,” wrote Witten.
“I am humbled by the dedication of humanitarians like Mr. Shar who put himself in danger to aid some of the world’s most vulnerable populations. Our thoughts are with the CCF community and family members at this time of loss.”
The Bureau provides aid and sustainable solutions for refugees and victims of conflict around the world through repatriation, local integration and resettlement in the United States.
The CCF community thanks the entire Bureau for its kind words during this time of loss.
