Following the recent launch of Hostage Aid Worldwide, a Washington DC based non governmental focused on relieving the misery of hostage victims and their families, Nizar Zakka CEO said “we are truly delighted that Nazanin Boniadi has agreed to join our honorary board. She brings a wealth of invaluable experience in campaigning for victims rights and helping to stamp out this evil practice by rogue states and terrorist organizations. We are really excited to have her as a key part of the team”
Nazanin Boniadi replied “I’m honored to work with Hostage Aid Worldwide to continue my advocacy on behalf of hostages and their families. We must work diligently and tirelessly to bring an end to the inhumane practice of hostage diplomacy.”
Hostage diplomacy by some countries is sadly becoming endemic as a means to try to settle international disputes and it needs a swift, decisive and coordinated response from the global community to eliminate it. Hostage Aid Worldwide is working with governments, the United Nations and international experts developing new approaches to combat it with data driven methods that analyze and intercept the hostage business model.
