Contribute

Want to add your own ideas or research? Perhaps new information has come out? Maybe you’re just cooped up in quarantine and want to deep dive on something. Whatever the reason, we welcome your contributions!

Quick Suggestions: Comment on the Google Document version of the guide you are viewing and we'll work your suggestion into the daily updates. Please include sources or credentials for any medical facts & advice.

Submit New Materials: We’d love to include additional guides or handouts that you have access to. Please share them in the #project-resources channel on Slack. Include links back to the original author so we can properly credit them.

Help Us Research, Write, Or Translate: We have had an amazing group of volunteers help us to produce these guides, and you can be one of them! If you’re up for some more involved work as a researcher, writer, or translator, then introduce yourself on Slack and we'll help get you setup. Please include how you’d like to contribute and your availability over the next 2-4 weeks.

Review The Guides: If you are an experienced aid worker or have medical training, we’d love a review to ensure we’re sharing up-to-date facts and the best possible advice. Feel free to comment on the Google Document versions directly, or email us at hello@distributeaid.org to set up a more directed review.

Improve This Site: Catch our dev team on Slack and contribute to this site on GitHub.

Translate

We desperately need translators to help us get this information out there to as many people as possible. If you are fluent in English and another language, please email us with what languages you speak and your availability to contribute on our #project-resources-translation Slack channel.

We hope these free resources are helpful! If you’d like to say thanks, please consider donating to Help Refugees. They will direct your donation to a refugee aid group that needs additional support to continue their work in these trying times.
