Hello Health Speaks Arabic,

Please visit our blog post to read about the final results of Health Speaks. We had 177 Arabic articles translated, published and reviewed by the deadline, including 3 articles on important reproductive health issues (safe sex, gonorrhea and birth control) that have already been viewed over 20,000 times.  

As you know, Google.org pledged to donate 3 US cents per English word translated to Children Cancer Hospital Egypt 57357.  Now, as a special thank you to all of you for your incredible hard work and patience with us as we tested things for the first time, we've also pledged an additional $10,000.  That's a total of $26,611 that will be donated to the hospital as a direct result of this group.  

It has been a privilege to work with all of you and I hope you feel very proud of yourselves!   I must also give special congratulations to our top contributors (below), to Mido and Hexacoder from Wikipedia, to Noura for our daily updates, and of course to Khaled for his wonderful reviewing skills and amazing enthusiasm! 

Top contributors

Translators:
1. Mammon Zumrawi (19 articles)
2. Fatma Adel (8 articles)
3. Noha Tantawy (6 articles)

Reviewers:
1. Mohanned Hammad (15 articles)
2. Anas Eljamal / Ahmed El-Shanawany (4 articles each)
3. Amer Omar (3 articles)

Enjoy the break and we look forward to working with you on future Health Speaks projects!

Joanne from Health Speaks

Thank you Joanne (and of course Khaled for his tremendous work), that was really helpful and I really appreciate of all of your efforts at Google.org.
I want to repeat what I've said earlier, this is the best project on Arabic Wikipedia I've seen till now which was conducted by a thrid-party organization or institution, both in terms of quantity and more important in quality.

I guess many of the contributors are already familiar with the Wikipedia editing process, I do encourage you all to continue enriching the Arabic content on Wikipedia specially in the field of health care and medicine.
There are still a LOT of articles to be added to the project, check this page for examples:

Cheers

Thank you all for your efforts,

I agree with mido this project was different in a good way :D

Khaled is a great project manager I was honored to work with him.

and all the volunteers really I enjoyed all your work and quality.You should all be proud, and these article you contributed will be there for like forever with people benefiting from it and may be wishing those who are behind the scenes all the best :D

You are really the "Unknown soldier" our Wikipedia world.

Thank you Noura Shawky for your nice lists and reminders they kept me in touch all the time.

I really would be honored to meet you all in person may be in first term vacation -If Khaled could help arrange something for us- where we can see what we can do as a next step.


Thank you Joanne, Jennifer and Beth for being nice, committed and understanding and for the EXTRA 10 000 :D

in the end thank you Wael AKA "The master mind" :D you have helped us in Arabic Wikipedia a lot.


Best of luck to you all,

Looking forward to meeting you,

And last thing,

in the end you can sit back and think, "My words/donations might save a soul"

قال تعالى
{
ومن أحياها فكأنما أحيا الناس جميعا }
المائدة -32-

In the Holy Qur'an,

Chapter 5 (Al Ma'eda) verse 32:

(
whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely.)

Thanks Mido and AbdelRahman for making this happen, really that was impressive from all of you. 

This project will not be that last, it is just a start for starting a wider usage of Arabic information online.


Thanks Dears. !

Great to hear that the project went well. Google arabia will always be committed to support Wikipedia growth. More to come soon.

Please update me with the plans for the 10 years anniversary celebration.

Thank you for your email. A reminder that participation in Health Speaks was on a volunteer basis, and no individuals received any compensation for their contribution. Instead, we donated $26,611 to Children Cancer Hospital Egypt 57357 on behalf of all our Arabic volunteers.

Best wishes,
Joanne from Health Speaks
