Support Ukrainian Journalists Reporting Conflict

Support Ukrainian Journalists Reporting Conflict

As the war continues, and amidst the most recent mass missile attack in the country, Ukrainian journalists and media outlets remain in need of support and protection.

Since February 2022, a total of 40 Ukrainian Journalists have been killed, 8 while carrying out professional duties. In September alone:

-----

“It’s local media that bring lifesaving information to communities about conflict areas to avoid, where to take shelter and get food, and how to travel safely. Not only do they report in local languages that local populations understand but they offer detailed, real-time information about available resources.”

– From Internews President Jeanne Bourgault’s op-ed in the Chronicle of Philanthropy

-----

Because of your continued support, Internews has now relocated 195 journalists, repurposed our offices in Moldova and Lithuania to support refugee communication efforts, and funded the procurement of emergency equipment: 250 flak jackets, 552 tactical medical kits, and 602 lifesaving items (tourniquets, bandages, antibiotics, drinking water treatment tablets).

Alongside immediate emergency relief, we’ve created and delivered resources to over 238 Ukrainian regional and local media outlets by:

  • Offering trainings on physical safety, tactical first aid, digital hygiene, and cybersecurity to 315 journalists across Ukraine
  • Supporting the monitoring of violations of journalists’ rights and the provision of legal assistance for 754 journalists
  • Supporting our partners’ training of 880 journalists to cover the war responsibly and ethically

Internews is committed to preserving the nearly 30 years of work we’ve done to support Ukraine’s independent media sector, and we remain dedicated and hopeful amidst the current complex humanitarian emergency.

We sincerely thank you for your donations, on behalf of our organization and the journalists risking their lives on the ground every day. It wouldn’t be possible without you.

Internews is so grateful for this community's support of our work to protect Ukrainian journalists in the current complex humanitarian emergency. Thanks to your generous donations, Internews has:

  • Relocated dozens of journalists and media support staff to safer locations
  • Offered digital security training to help media and civil society defend against hacking, phishing, and DDOS attacks
  • Re-purposed our offices in Moldova and Lithuania to support refugee communication efforts and journalists operating remotely
  • Procured hundreds of flak jackets, helmets, first aid kits and tech equiptment and subscriptions for journalists so they can continue to work safely.

As the crisis continues, so does the need. Our team is working hard to protect and preserve the independent Ukrainian media sector and to help journalists continue their vital work. We are also committed to working for years to come to ensure Ukraine maintains a vibrant media sector that provides citizens with vital information, debunks disinformation, and holds power to account. For more information, we recommend these local organizations for credible, current information on the latest attacks against media in Ukraine and disinformation about the conflict.

We sincerely thank GlobalGiving and all those that have supported this work to date - we could not do it without you.
