Ukraine Voices Appeal

Ukraine is under attack and Ukrainian voices must be heard.

Your donations enable us to increase our support to local voices so that they can tell the story of Ukraine under fire.

We are providing funding for journalists to do their work and emergency support for media in distress. We are organising training and procuring protective equipment to those on the frontline. Working with local partners in Ukraine, we are helping media workers displaced by the fighting.

IWPR has been working in Ukraine since 2015 and has local staff and widespread contacts in local media and civil society organisations across the country. We work in partnership with local and international support groups to ensure that all support is used effectively, efficiently and reaches those who need it.

Help us to keep Ukrainian journalists safe and productive so their voices can be heard.

"I promised my wife I would not take up a weapon. I have never held one in my arms anyway. My passion is the media, and I can better serve Ukraine by continuing to work as a journalist."
