Video reaches diverse communities

We all need iron in our diet to keep our bodies healthy and working properly. A new video from Gateway Health provides interesting information on just how important it is, and how we can make sure we’re getting enough.

Even better the video is also available in a range of languages spoken by some of our newest migrant groups in the community.

Working with the Albury Wodonga Ethnic Communities Council (AWECC), the Gateway Health video has been produced in English, and translated into three languages commonly spoken amongst newer arrivals: Swahili, Kinyarwanda, and Nepali.

It’s hoped this video will be the first of many. Dr Mira Kapur takes viewers through the role that iron plays in maintaining bodily health, and how to make sure there’s enough iron in your diet.

The video was produced by Olivier Ruzoviya, with funding provided by the Multicultural Affairs unit within the Department of Premier and Cabinet.

This educational video is expected to make a useful contribution in its own right, but also help pave the way for other productions in future.
