Ashraf Rizk, president and chief executive officer of Chemonics, made this statement: “Our hearts and prayers go out to the families of the deceased. The victims of these attacks are not just the people killed but all Afghan citizens struggling to rebuild their country and their lives. We will continue to support USAID and local governments in their efforts to provide economic opportunities to the Afghan people.”
Chemonics has been helping Afghans rebuild their country since June 2002. AIP, one of four projects Chemonics is implementing in Afghanistan, is an income generation project.
Under the project, Afghans are working with Chemonics to repair infrastructure such as roads and irrigation systems. Attacks like these are rare in the work that we do.
We will continue to support USAID and local governments in their efforts to provide economic opportunities to Afghan citizens and their families.
