*Help African Journalists fight the spread of Ebola*


​​
The countries most threatened by the Ebola virus —Sierra Leone, Liberia and
Guinea— are also those with the fewest resources to report on the crisis.
Three international organizations have launched an IndieGoGo crowdfunding
campaign
<https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-african-journalists-fight-the-spread-of-ebola/x/8809970>
 to get vital equipment to local radio stations in the worst-affected areas.

The *World Federation of Science Journalists (WFSJ) <http://wfsj.org/>* in
association with *Hirondelle USA <http://hirondelleusa.org/>* and the *World
Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC)
<http://www2.amarc.org/>* created this fundraising campaign to help local
radio stations and their staff in Ebola-affected regions. You can help
contribute to the cause on Indiegogo:

       Contribute NOW

*Why Local Radio?*

In many regions, rural radio is the most trusted source of information for
local communities, but many local radio stations lack the tools to report
accurate and timely information in this crisis situation.

Not only do reporters need telephones and voice recorders to capture
information, they need transportation to reach affected remote communities,
and their stations need fuel and electricity to air their programs.

*EVERY DOLLAR* donated to this campaign will go to buying vital equipment
for local radio stations.

*YOUR HELP* will enable journalists to focus on their reporting, not their
costs, and deliver credible information to populations in crisis.
        *Help us share the campaign with your network!*
