You can read about this cooperation with other humanitarian organizations on the TWB blog.

I feel proud and honored to be part of Translators without Borders, a magnificent team of volunteers that contribute to make the world a better place!

Kudos to the three of you!

But what a harrowing job it must have been. When I saw the request, I discussed with my husband how it must feel to do that sort of work. It must have really torn at the heartstrings reading pleas for help etc., but so good to know you were able to aid the relief effort in such a direct manner.
