The Media Lifeline Ukraine campaign
Together with our partners, we kick-started Media Lifeline Ukraine on Giro 7676. Only with ongoing external support, will local media entities be able to continue to do their work. Media companies that we have been working with for over a decade now, indicate that there is a need for practical support and importantly, help for the longer term, to maintain the flow of reliable information.
More about Media Lifeline Ukraine
The Media Lifeline Ukraine campaign is all about providing longer-term support through the provision of equipment: equipment to be able to continue reporting, but also digital security (VPNs) as well as the setting up of media hubs in neighboring countries with offshore newsrooms, where journalists are relatively safe and can come together to do their important work.
Media Lifeline Ukraine supporters include the European Journalism Centre, Raam op Rusland, the Dutch Association of Journalists, VPRO, PR Dashboard, Financieel Dagblad, Rotary Club Nieuwspoort, Museum of WW2 Resistance, Beeld en Geluid Den Haag and the European Press Prize. We also started a collaboration with Reporters without Borders (RSF) to join efforts in the protection of Ukrainian journalists.
