Humanitarian Jobs Abroad Cautions

Relief work is not for the faint of heart. Relief workers killed in the line of duty are a part of the reality of relief work worldwide. Once someone leaves their country, to go overseas, to help others who are fleeing a war torn country, they become at risk themselves. In 2008, 122 relief workers were killed. 260 were assaulted.

This is partly due to the fact, that relief workers are increasingly being seen as political players. In November 2008, three gunmen attempted to kidnap two aid workers while they were on their way to work in Kabul. An Afghan man who tried to assist the two aid workers was killed. One of the aid workers was also killed. The other managed to escape.
