I was one of 24 freelancers trained in battlefield first aid at RISC’s fourth course on June 18-21 this year. RISC courses teach freelance journalists lifesaving techniques to treat our own wounds, and those of our colleagues and civilians, while working in conflict zones. RISC uses donations to pay for our instruction fees and accommodations, and provides each of us with a comprehensive medical kit to take with us back into the field.
Please help me pay it forward by donating to get my fellow freelancers trained. As freelancers working without institutional backing in remote, dangerous areas, we depend on each other to keep ourselves safe. RISC is a nonprofit organization which relies on the support of concerned community members to cover our training fees. Your contributions will help RISC pay for the next cadre of trainees.
Who knows – you may help train the person who saves my life on my next assignment. Donate here.
Thank you for your support.
