2402 Foundation appeals to the international audience on the occasion of World Press Freedom Day – Ukrainian journalists need first aid kits!
Today, on 3 May, on the occasion of World Press Freedom Day during Difference Day in Brussels, the founders of 2402 Foundation officially announced a fundraiser for tactical first aid kits for Ukrainian journalists

Since the beginning of the 2402 Foundation's activity, the main mission has been to provide journalists with first aid kits and all the necessary equipment to work in dangerous conditions. Every day, the need and requests for first aid kits from journalists are growing and, unfortunately, it is extremely difficult to meet these needs.

The security situation in Ukraine is very tense at the moment. More and more media workers are going to work in the war zone - this is their mission. And the Foundation's mission is to provide these people with self-defence and first aid equipment. After all, a first aid kit is a basic personal protection that should be available to anyone and everyone who makes war visible. However, most Ukrainian media workers cannot afford this protection. That is why we have asked all 2402 Foundation training graduates, media professionals and public figures to sign an official appeal document and express their agreement and solidarity with the launch of a major fundraising campaign to purchase first aid kits. It was with this document that the founders of the 2402 Foundation addressed the international community during a speech in Brussels on Difference Day to call on everyone to support our fundraising and help journalists in their work mission.

The statement was signed by:

Roman Stepanovych, producer, media manager, co-founder of 2402 Foundation
