Freedom House, together with Front Line Defenders, and other 19 governments, are providing support to CSOs that are under threat or attack, through the Lifeline Embattled CSO Assistance Fund. The grants can address things related, but not limited to medical expenses, security, legal representation, prison visits, trial monitoring, temporary relocation, and equipment replacement.
