Hi,

Could someone help me with 'Aidez-les à gagner leur vie pour ne pas qu’ils la perdent'

my best shot is 'help them to win their life so that they don't lose it' - but it doesn't sound right :-/

Thanks!

    You can't translate this litterally. There is a wordplay in French based on:
    gagner sa vie (=make a living),
    perdre sa vie (=to die)
