The AMARC Asia-Pacific Campaign against COVID-19

Community radios across the Asia-Pacific region are working hard to help communities deal with the challenges posed by the COVID-19. Individual community radio broadcasters are risking their lives to serve the most relevant and up to date information to their communities.

The AMARC Asia-Pacific Campaign against COVID-19 is an initiative to complement the admirable work of our member stations.

We wish everyone good health and safety. Let’s be vigilant against the virus, the disease it causes and against all forces that challenge our freedom of expression and human rights!
