At least 100 journalists and bloggers have been arrested since the disputed 12 June presidential election and 23 are still being held. At the same time, around 50 have been forced to flee the country to escape the relentless repression.

The list of journalists who have fled and who are receiving legal and humanitarian assistance from Reporters Without Borders gets longer every day.

In view of the scale of this exodus, Reporters Without Borders is launching an appeal for financial support for these journalists and bloggers, who find themselves utterly destitute as they search for a safe refuge.

Your donations will help to pay for their air tickets and other forms of travel, and for food, lodging and medical care.

Reporters Without Borders has the 501c3 status in the United States. Your donation will be tax-deductible.
