IWPR ESTABLISHES SAHAR JOURNALISTS' ASSISTANCE FUND

Exiled or disabled journalists around the world can now attend training programmes at the Institute of War and Peace Reporting (IWPR) through a newly established fund.

The Sahar Journalists' Assistance Fund, named in honour of Iraqi journalist Sahar al-Haideri, who was assassinated by unknown gunmen in Mosul in June, will be used to support exiled or disabled journalists, as well as the families of journalists who die in the line of duty.

For more information, contact Ria Burghardt, director of development, at: [email protected] or visit: http://tinyurl.com/28lr48
