 Dear GIS colleagues,

We are looking for someone would could help with mapping the below area
(Niger border) and flagging a number of points.
That would be very helpful - preferably for tomorrow...

Please let us know who could assist IOM by helping with ad hoc requests.
We are also looking at hiring some for a short term who could be immediately
available and preferably already in GVA (to be confirmed as it depends on
how much mapping needs we have).

Best,

Patrice
