It's been a hectic week at TrustMedia, so this will be a quick post.
TrustMedia intern Bobbie is off to Cairo next week to help with Aswat Masriya as the Egyptian elections begin on Monday, 28 November! The Arabic language website provides Egyptians with vital news and information about the upcoming elections in Egypt, and is run by a team of local journalists in Cairo.
An English language version of the website is in the works and should be available soon, so stay tuned!
