This rapid assistance initiative is only lifeline journalists at risk have at non-governmental level after
they report their cases to Freedom Network’s Safety Hubs Network across the country.
Under PJSF, journalists at risks are provided assistance in five different assistance categories. An
independent Steering Committee decides assistance requests after Freedom Network evaluates each
assistance case. Any journalist who needs any assistance under its mandated categories can request
directly for assistance by reaching out to Freedom Network.
