Support Nicaraguan journalist victims of COVID-19

Because of the failure of the government of Nicaragua to deal with the COVID-19 epidemic, over 30 Nicaraguan journalists have been infected. Two radio newsmen, Sergio León and Gustavo Bermúdez, died. Two more, Alvaro Navarro and Emiliano Chamorro, had serious illnesses, and were turned away by hospitals due to lack of beds.

PEN Nicaragua, in conjunction with Voces en Libertad, has set up a GoFundMe page to assist journalists who have become COVID-19 victims. Click here to make a contribution.
