    Offer of Help from Former US Peace Corps Volunteers and Bislama-English Translators: Please scan and send instructions for aid supplies that you are sending (water purification tabs, dehydrated foods, tools, medicines, etc) for a free translation into Bislama (Vanuatu’s national language). Send requests to nangae2005-wrk@yahoo.com

    -We’ll send back a Bislama translation free of charge so that people at the village level will be able to make the best use of the items you are sending to help them. I’ve gathered more than 20 translators of Bislama from across the planet and we are eager to help.
