Giving Tuesday 2020: USAGM Employee Association Fundraiser

Tragically, earlier this month in Afghanistan, RFE/RL reporter Mohammad Ilyas Dayee was assassinated in a targeted bomb attack on his vehicle because of his reporting. Your tremendous generosity enabled the Association to give Mohammad’s family support, raised by colleagues and press freedom champions like you.We have now concluded the fundraising campaign to support Mohammad’s surviving family. If you did not get a chance to donate, please consider becoming a recurring donor and giving to the Association’s general assistance fund through the Association’s Giving Tuesday campaign.
