Editorial- Let's not forget Afghan colleagues

Since the day the Taliban took over Kabul, we have worked hard - with your support - to help our Afghan sisters and brothers in need. The emergency appeal we launched in August 2021 has been pivotal in saving lives, either by supporting those fleeing the country or by providing essential basic food and medicines for those who remain in Afghanistan.

But. The money has run out and our colleagues badly need humanitarian assistance: funds and food

There is not a single day on which we don't receive another request for help from Afghanistan or from Afghan journalists exiled in neighboring countries. Once again we urge you to help us show that IFJ solidarity has real meaning.

How can you help? Raise funds among your members, use our model letter and ask to meet your government to offer Afghan journalists a route out of the nightmare they face.
