U.S. Senator Bob Casey released a statement following an attack in Kabul that killed medical personnel from the United States.
“My thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the Americans killed and the medical personnel injured in Kabul this morning,” Casey said. “These individuals generously gave their time helping to treat women and children with disabilities in Afghanistan. Their dedication and selfless service is remarkable.”
“While Afghanistan has made tremendous gains in the last decade, specialized health services such as those provided at the Cure International Hospital in Kabul are often unavailable,” he said. “I deeply appreciate the work of the organizations that provide much needed medical care for women and children in Afghanistan and applaud those medical professionals who have made the sacrifice to help build a better, healthier world for all.”
