Independent journalists in Ukraine have risked their lives to uncover human rights abuses and corruption - and to protect public interest - in the country. Responding to the invasion of Ukraine, Internews is giving emergency funds to protect Ukrainian journalists and help them provide trust-worthy, life-saving information to communities in conflict areas.
With the pervasive geopolitical tension, Ukrainians are relying even more on journalists to provide accurate, trustworthy information that will help them to make informed, life-saving decisions.
Journalists play a critical role in briefing the world a true account of conflicts. Without journalists, affected communities - those who have the most stake, and the most to lose in a conflict - may not be able to get their voices heard, as well as access life-saving information. By supporting Ukrainian journalists during this humanitarian crisis, you are helping to ensure communities receive the information that they need to make informed decisions, and the means to make their voices heard.
Since 1994, Internews has supported high-quality media content, investigative reporting, anti-corruption efforts, media literacy in schools, crucial media reforms, innovations in combatting disinformation, and efforts to improve the long-term sustainability of key media institutions in Ukraine. Your support will not only strengthen the Ukrainian journalists' ability to report on the ground but will also help to preserve independent media in the country.
