Emergency support

The COVID-19 Response in Africa project is set up to provide quick financial assistance to media outlets, journalists and other critical media workers. The aim is to address their most pressing needs, and enable them to continue the production of quality public interest content to reach a large audience, including the most marginalised communities.

Therefore, the consortium partners of the COVID-19 Response in Africa project provide emergency support to both individual journalists and media organisations in distress as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The objective is to enable them to continue to provide their public with essential information on the coronavirus.
