(1) Update: "Fund a translator" program and Translators without Borders' healthcare translator center
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Last year, the ProZ.com community assisted in the donation drive for Translators without Borders' "Fund a translator" program, which supports a healthcare translator training center in Nairobi, Kenya.

These same translators played an important role in an information sharing initiative surrounding the recent elections in Kenya. Appreciation goes out to these translators, to Translators without Borders, and to all of the translators who have given and continue to give of their time, expertise and other resources to help others.
