Hi Manuel,

This is not a problem. The main criteria is that a humanitarian
organization needs the data for field work.

Please send me directly something that outlines the area you are
interested in having mapped, shapefile, geojson or .osm file will

As well as some details on the organizations that need the data and
how it will help their project.
