Health documents translated into different languages by volunteers.


English versions were produced by AKF. The Bengali, Nepali and Hindi versions soon followed, after being translated by AKF’s volunteer network. Audio files of the “10 tips to follow” were then produced by the volunteers with support from AKF and uploaded to YouTube to make sure the information could reach as many people as possible.

What does the project seek to achieve?

Overall, this project aims to identify the gaps in messages on COVID-19 and then to work with public health services and migrant communities to adapt materials to address those gaps. Disseminating key messages to and with vulnerable communities is one part of AKF’s response to slow and stop transmission of COVID-19 and minimise its impact on communities in Portugal.
