Building peace in the minds of men and women

FACTS - global media campaign


We are currently facing an unprecedented health crisis.

The COVID-19 pandemic spreading across the world also represents a new challenge for the press, which was already battling smear campaigns and defamation.

Today, citizens are on lockdown, eager for news like never before. And more than ever, the news must be fact- checked, verified. Because disinformation spreads as fast as the virus itself, and journalists are on the frontline in the fight against the distortion of truth.

More than ever we need facts. 

Facts to avoid spreading fear, fake news and panic. 
 More than ever we need a free press.


On World Press Freedom Day, we need your support to defend a free and independent press.
