We thank you all

#AceNewsGroup says as the New Year swiftly approaches we try to remember such events that have changed our world, one such as reported by "Reporters Without Borders" is the number of Journalists who have died or been imprisoned in 2013. So to all those just reporting the #Truth l salute your work. Editor

This was just received about an hour ago and says thank you from them as well.

Dear donors, friends, correspondents and staff members,

It is not easy to end such a difficult year. According to our tally, 75 journalists were killed in 2013 just for doing their job and 177 were in prison as the year drew to a close. The situation of freedom of information is still alarming.

Many of you work all out, day and night, for our organization. Some of you are operating in the field and are constantly taking risks to defend freedom of information.

I would like to express my thanks to you all! We are infinitely indebted to you for your courage, commitment and generosity. We are proud to work for Reporters Without Borders for many reasons, but most of all because you are working with us.

To all the others, I would like to say that, while we constantly have more to do, our resources have been compromised by the crisis, which has hit us hard. We are desperately short of funds and I must therefore appeal to you again for your financial support.

I know that that the crisis helps no one and that not everybody is in a position to give, but it would make a big difference for freedom of information if those who are able were to give within the limits of their possibilities.

I would finally like to say that, for our fight on behalf of those who need freely reported news and information into order to live in freedom, each gift, each dollar counts.

I thank all of you, I wish you a festive New Year’s Eve, and I hope your goals are realized in 2014.

With best regards,

Christophe Deloire
Secretary general
Reporters Without Borders
