The team members are “utterly devastated,” FOP2020’s Executive Director, Beth Schlachter said in a statement.

“Jennifer Schlecht has dedicated her entire career to ensuring that women and girls in crisis situations have access to the best medical care possible, including family planning and reproductive health care,” the statement read.

“She was a leader in the field of family planning, humanitarian assistance, and it had to be to work in New York city, so they can have more time with her, my dear daughter,” the statement read. “It was nice for us to talk about her daughter’s first day of kindergarten and primary school, and the clothes that she picked out all by herself.”
