The death of Lorraine Enebral in Afghanistan is an opportunity to applaud exemplary humanitarian work of 2.599 professional
The murder of cooperating Spanish Lorena Enebral in Afghanistan is a new blow to non-governmental organizations that develop ir work in areas of risk. And it is also an occasion to recognize and applaud selfless and exemplary humanitarian work of 2.599 Spanish professionals dedicated to external co-operation in 84 countries, according to data published by Ministry of Foreign affairs on 8 September on occasion of International Day of Donor.

Madrid 38, Lorena Enebral worked in orthopedic center of International Committee of Red Cross in Mazar-i-Sharif, north of Afghanistan, where he plied for more than a year as a physical rapist of children and women mutilated because of war. His death is even more overwhelming and generates a greater shock for circumstances in which it occurred: he died of a gunshot at hands of a patient of center, a young man of 22 years old who moved around in a wheelchair and received care from three.
In recent months, Red Cross has been punished with special virulence in Afghanistan. To extent that entity temporarily suspended ir labors in that country after murder of six aid workers in February and abduction of two ors. These attacks have placed NGOS in a dilemma: to maintain programmes of assistance to vulnerable groups, or to preserve its security.
The professionals linked to humanitarian organizations often have to face situations of danger, as evidenced by high number of kidnappings of aid workers at hands of terrorist groups. This is why it is even more admirable work done by thousands of people who, like Lorena Enebral, fight against poverty and inequality and in favour of health and education of populations torn apart by armed conflict.
