Dedication to Basra Hassan Farah

The ENN would like to dedicate this edition of Field Exchange to Basra Hassan Farah, a Nutrition Specialist with UNICEF who died in a restaurant attack on Friday 17th January 2014, in Kabul, Afghanistan. We also extend sympathies to the family and friends of Dr Nasreen Khan of Pakistan, a UNICEF Health Specialist, who died in the attack, and to the families and friends of the remaining 19 people who were killed. For the past four years, Basra was the Nutrition Cluster Coordinator in Afghanistan. Basra’s death prompted an outpouring of messages in the international community that have been collated by Josephine Ippe, Global Nutrition Cluster Coordinator, who was a longstanding friend and colleague of Basra1. While the ENN team crossed paths with Basra just a handful of times, we have such fond and strong memories of her that are testament to her bright and engaging presence and strength of character; a true humanitarian.
