Donate to Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues (RISC)

September 10, 2012

Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues (RISC) was founded by Sebastian Junger in reaction to the death of his friend and colleague Tim Hetherington, who lost his life covering combat in the Libyan city of Misrata a year and a half ago.

RISC trains freelance journalists in battlefield medicine and in April they completed their first training session. Their near-term goal is to train 125 freelance combat journalists by the end of next year, and hope to eventually provide medical training to the entire freelance community.

We hope to soon welcome them to London, but RISC is a non-profit that does not charge for training so in order for this to happen they need donations. The money you donate will help pay for medical kits, lodging and a three day intensive course for our students.
