Prompted by the murder of Ajmal Naqshbandi in Afghanistan in 2007, the Frontline Club initiated the Fixers’ Fund – a special project to raise money for the families of fixers killed or injured around the world while working with the international media.
It was decided at a trustees’ meeting on 16 July 2013 that the name would be changed to the Frontline Fund.
The deaths of fixers and support staff in the field are all too often swiftly forgotten but foreign reporters could not operate in the field without them. To try and help these unsung heroes of the industry, the Frontline Club has set up this fund and pledges to pass on 100 percent of all the contributions it receives to the families involved. Please support this worthy cause.
