    My name is Koy Saephan and I am seeking to hire a Burmese speaking interpreter to assist a Burmese speaking family who has applied for (and was denied) medical benefits by the Dep of Human Assistance, in LA. My company is charged with hiring someone, however, Burmese is a rare language and we have no one within our network. This would be a job on 6/18 at 1:00. We do get these requests, going forward, about once a month. I am asking for your organization to help me identify someone who can help this family out. Please feel free to call and discuss details. I can be reached direct at 916-412-4555. To learn more about who I am and what I do, please feel free to visit the website at

    Warmest Regards,

    Koy Saepahn
