Alex Duval Smith earned the respect of her colleagues everywhere for the risks she took covering wars in Africa, and the compassion and intelligence of her in-depth stories on politics and human affairs.
Alex passed away in 2019 after an 18-month battle against cancer. To honor her life and her own great generosity, the Alex Duval Smith Memorial Fund is being established to aid women journalists in crisis throughout the world.
This is vital today, as more than ever women journalists and photographers continue to risk their lives in dangerous places to tell the stories of people threatened by war and devastation.
Your generous donation will be distributed by the Emergency Fund of the International Women’s Media Foundation.
