1. "It is satisfying to help the others."

2a. "It is a satisfaction to help the others."

I suppose sentence 1. is fine.

Is sentence 2a. correct? or do we need to add the word "as":
2b. "It is a satisfaction as to help the others."


Thank you very much.

    The first one sounds good if you drop the article before "others".
    As to the other one, I'd suggest "It gives me satisfaction to help others", or "Helping others gives me satisfaction".
