Unbiased news from Syria goes global via WhatsApp

In East Ghouta armed groups engaged in fierce fighting with the army of President Assad. The area was becoming increasingly isolated; international media left and news about the daily reality of the inhabitants was only coming out in dribs and drabs. The Syrian Journalists Association created a WhatsApp group to prevent East Ghouta from becoming completely isolated.

Free Press Unlimited has contributed to the establishment of the Syrian Journalists Association in 2013, and has supported the organisation since then.
