Hi everyone, as former EUROSHA EU Aid Volunteer, I can just say it was an immense pleasure to be part of such great experience. I always keep thinking and speaking about it! Thank you to all of you HOT guys, especially Sev and Nicolas who strongly supported us. Hopefully, the international community will keep investing in the use of mapping tools for humanitarian purpose.
Good luck guys with the great job you are doing for the ebola response!
All the bestIolanda

Thanks Jorieke, highest credit for Sev then since he followed the Eurosha mapping teams of Burundi, Central African Republic and Kenya. 
But truly you and the other mappers from the EUROSHA project made it easy for Sev and I to find the energy, stamina to work with you starting and growing OSM in those countries through paid and a lot of voluntary time. 
These are for me fantastic memories still acutely vivid and energizing, so again, thanks and congrats for this collective engagement of you Eurosha mappers.
Hopefully, in the EU, we through EUROSHA opened a way that other volunteering organizations will continue exploring and adopting like VSO,
Ideally, those experiments will feed into the World Humanitarian Summit and the on-going open dialogue on changing the aid system at play within the large humantarian and development communities.

Thanks Jorieke for sharing this on the list : it's interesting indeed and surely rewarding of all the efforts put into this project on your side, the ones of the many volunteers !

Hi all, 
As former Eu Aid Volunteer for the Eurosha project (where more then 20 european and african volunteers were deployed in four different countries in Africa to mainly promote and train local people on OpenStreetMap) I'm happy to see the Eurpean commision keeps on supporting the humanitarian use of OpenStreetMap through the Eu Aid Volunteer program! 
I came across a nice article about mapping in the Philippines I wanted to share with you. Here it is: http://ec.europa.eu/echo/en/field-blogs/stories/eu-aid-volunteer-uses-digital-mapping-help-prepare-disasters-phlippines
Best,
