Day Translations Partners With the Amaanah Foundation to Offer Free Medical Interpretation Services to Refugees
Day Translations, Inc. will partner with Texas' Amaanah Foundation to offer medical interpretation services to refugee mothers and their children.
New York City, NY, June 14, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Day Translations, a New York-based Language Service Provider has allied with The Amaanah Foundation, to provide pro bono interpretation services to 35 refugee mothers and their children, during their medical visits.
The Amaanah Foundation is a Texan non-governmental organization dedicated to helping immigrants settle in the United States through a wide variety of social, economic and educational assistance programs.
As told in the organization’s website:
“With a desire to give back running in their blood, a small group of the University of Houston students came together in 2006 to work on a community service project. What they discovered was the spark that ignited their growing passion to serving resettled refugees. Uncovering the large scale of unmet needs of thousands of resettled refugees in their own city, they began to collect food, clothing, furniture and even funds for distribution. They quickly realized that fulfilling only short-term and immediate needs was not enough to fully support the many newcomers to the city.
Fueled by a drive to revolutionize the industry, in 2008 Amaanah Refugee Services was officially established. As the heart and soul of this organization, Amaanah’s team has grown exponentially to meet the ever-growing needs of resettled refugees. Through our focused programs and events, in 2016 we touched the lives of more than 10,000 resettled refugees in Texas.”
Founded in 2007, Day Translations is an industry-leading language solutions company dedicated to ensuring effective and clear cross-cultural communication, and specialized in serving immigrants, medical professionals and businesses.
Since most of those who receive the services of The Amaanah Foundation come from North Africa, Day Translations will provide the foundation with a team of mother-tongue interpreters of Swahili, Arabic, Tigrinya, and Farsi.
Day Translations is run by an international team of language, marketing and tech professionals. Recently, the company’s CEO, Sean Patrick Hopwood, was awarded as one of the best CEOs for cultural diversity.
This collaboration is part of Day Translations’ social outreach program, through which the company aims to:
❖ Exercise and promote the equal treatment of all people, independently of origin or ethnicity
❖ Help create a culture of trust, respect and accountability
❖ Seek efficient, comprehensive and lasting solutions
❖ Foster healthy, active and fulfilling lives

Day Translations has also assisted offering free interpretation services during the Egyptian crisis, and has collaborated with international charities such as the Pies Descalzos foundation.
