Within the framework of the “Rapid Response Fund Initiative“ program, the Public Journalism Club is announcing about an opportunity to provide financial assistance to media workers injured during the war.
Due to the limited financial resources, the media workers who suffered during the second Nagorno Karabakh war and obtained health problems will be selected.
If you have covered the 44-day war and your health has been damaged, please fill out this form. Deadline for applications is June 30, 2021.
The main goals of the “Rapid Response Fund Initiative” program supported by EED (European Endowment for Democracy) are to provide fast and flexible support to journalists and media workers, to provide them with medical and psychological assistance, to develop professional skills in international humanitarian law, first aid, digital and personal data security, and to raise awareness of psychological protection among journalists and the public.
The program is implemented by the Public Journalism Club NGO. Within the framework of the project, a coordinating consortium was formed, which includes the Media Initiative Center, the Yerevan Press Club, the Freedom of Information Center, the Committee to Protect Freedom of Expression, and the Comprehensive Information Institute. The consortium will develop the long-term vision, mission, and strategy of the initiative.
