Our mission is to provide financial and moral support to the families of journalists who have lost their jobs, injured or died during duty in the current situation.
Journalists are the eyes of society who work to generate awareness among public about the strengths and weaknesses of the society, but this part of the society suffers most. Being working as an important source of information in society, journalists face most dangers due to nature of their work, where on one hand their life is endangered by mafia system and on other hand government officials also turn against them. In war, peace, disease or any pandemic, journalists always work as front line workers.
Modern journalists have played a key role in society for several hundred yearsâ€”aiming to inform the public about current events and their impact. While the purpose of the media is to serve the public and to encourage political participation in a democratic society, the field has long been painted in a negative light or even prosecuted, especially by oppressive governments.
But despite this, journalists are facing many economic and social problems, somewhere close down news organizations and somewhere journalists are facing sword of downsizing. Journalists who risk their lives to work for institutions but they are not getting much to support their families.
The International Journalists Welfare Association is an independent, nonprofit organization that is working for the betterment of journalists worldwide, especially in developing countries where journalists are facing much problems. We facilitate journalists financially and morally to work independently.
