Thomson Reuters Foundation has produced the “Ethics Handbook for Journalists” in English and Arabic versions, using a legacy from journalist Mona Megalli who died from cancer in February 2007. Born and raised in Egypt, Mona moved to the United States in her mid-teens and later became a reporter covering events around the world for more than 20 years. She was committed to the principles of free and fair journalism and, when she learned that illness would cut her life short, she made provision for a fund to promote journalism ethics, focused on the region of her birth.
