fight the spread of Ebola

The countries most threatened by the Ebola virus —Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea— are also those with the fewest resources to report on the crisis. Three international organizations have launched an IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign to get vital equipment to local radio stations in the worst-affected areas.
The World Federation of Science Journalists (WFSJ) in association with Hirondelle USA and the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) created this fundraising campaign to help local radio stations and their staff in Ebola-affected regions. You can help contribute to the cause on Indiegogo:

Why Local Radio?

In many regions, rural radio is the most trusted source of information for local communities, but many local radio stations lack the tools to report accurate and timely information in this crisis situation.

Not only do reporters need telephones and voice recorders to capture information, they need transportation to reach affected remote communities, and their stations need fuel and electricity to air their programs.

EVERY DOLLAR donated to this campaign will go to buying vital equipment for local radio stations.

YOUR HELP will enable journalists to focus on their reporting, not their costs, and deliver credible information to populations in crisis.
Help us share the campaign with your network!
