Assefa condemns killing of polio workers

Karachi: Assefa Bhutto Zardari, Ambassador for Polio Eradication, has strongly condemned the violence against polio workers that killed four female workers and a fourteen year old girl.

In a release here Wednesday, she said: “Everyone involved in the polio campaign are selfless volunteers; they do this to save lives, they do this to save Pakistan.

“We must not be deterred. Better security precautions will be taken. InshahAllah through our passion and dedication we shall eradicate this crippling disease from our homeland, we shall continue to fight in the names of those who have lost their lives for the cause.

We shall continue to fight for young girls like Farzana. Terrorists do this to scare us, they do this to try and stop us, we shall not be silenced and we will not stop the need, come what may.”
