Radio stations broadcast earthquake help messages in 10 languages

The Office of Ethnic Affairs is responding to the needs of ethnic people following the Christchurch earthquake by offering support and information about the help that is available.

Five key messages have been translated in to 10 languages to be broadcast on radio stations around the country.

The messages focus on how to access financial advice, social services and counselling support and the availability of the Office of Ethnic Affair’s telephone interpretation service Language Line.

They include a message from the Minister for Ethnic Affairs, Hekia Parata, who sends her condolences and sympathy to those affected by the earthquake.
