For less than the price of a couple of bombs or missiles, Airwars has already tracked more than 5,000 reported civilian casualty events involving international powers in Iraq and Syria. In a short time we have built a strong international reputation for credible independent monitoring. However we also need your help.

By donating to Airwars you’ll be helping us continue to provide independent and trustworthy monitoring of international military actions in Iraq, Syria and Libya. We are a collaborative not-for-profit organisation – run both by paid staff and by volunteer specialists – with extensive experience in international research and investigative journalism.

With Russia’s campaign in Syria escalating – and Turkey now joining that war – our researchers sometimes struggle to keep up. We’re also tracking US airstrikes against ISIS in Libya, where other countries too are waging a shadow war. All of this is achieved with very limited funds.

Our overheads are extremely low. But we need more specialist researchers and investigators to keep up with growing reports of civilian casualties. We also need to fund further improvements to our expanding website, including Arabic-language versions of key pages. And we want to hire more geolocators, to help us identify and map the locations of alleged civilian casualty events.

Your donation will help us to expand our research, and to share our information further. To show how you’ve helped, we will be publishing annual accounts setting out all of our donations and grants, and explaining how that money has been spent.

Thank you for helping Airwars.
