Ajmal Fund & Operation AzraIn 2007, we’ve been able to expand our scope. In May, we launched the Ajmal Fund, which supports and benefits the families of the Afghan fixers. In July, we launched Operation Azra, to benefit victims of acid burning in Pakistan. Both programs have successfully raised thousands of dollars, thanks to you.
We operate these projects because we’re committed not only to creating better, more independent reportage, but because we recognize a humanitarian responsibility to help those who make it possible—either as fixers or as subjects.
More information about the Ajmal Fund and Operation Azra is available athttp://www.novembereleven.org/projects. If you’re a donor, or would like to become one, please feel free to contact us with your questions.
Lightstalkers continues to grow
Finally, and as always, we continue to operate Lightstalkers.org. Each month, over 70,000 visitors browse among our 19,000 member profiles and 97,000 images, and it continues to expand. Although it’s a lot of work to keep the lights on, we’re still able to launch new features and improvements on an ongoing basis.Again, we’re able to do this because of your financial support. We expect Lightstalkers to continue to grow, and hope that it continues to be relevant to you and your work.
