Following the invasion of Ukraine on the 24th of February, we saw an unprecedented demand for protective safety kit from the freelance journalist community.

Journalists on the ground in Ukraine were unprepared for this war and found it especially difficult to source the essential equipment needed to stay safe. We worked with our partners in the Journalists In Distress network to provide vital safety kits and we are now working to provide much needed first aid kits - the next step in our mission to protect as many journalists as possible.

We are proud to be able to share news of the brave journalists and recipients of the safety kits - follow us on twitter for more details @RoryPeckTrust

Thank you to everyone who has donated to our campaign so far. You have made a tremendous impact and we thank you for supporting our mission.

It is vital that journalists in Ukraine can safely cover the war and fight misinformation and propaganda so thank you again for supporting this campaign.
