Settlement Services International’s (SSI) FutureAbility Project has launched the National Multilingual Disability Hub, a multilingual hotline and website that provide easily accessible information on disability and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in 14 languages.
Access to in-language information enables people from CALD backgrounds living with disabilities to become active players in the disability space and empowers them to live the life they choose.
The phone line and website are available in Arabic, Assyrian, Bangla, Cantonese, Farsi, Greek, Italian, Macedonian, Mandarin, Nepali, Spanish Tamil, Urdu, and Vietnamese.
The National Multilingual Disability Hub is funded by the NDIA’s Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) Readiness Grants.
Ladies and gentlemen, family and friends, I have a few humble words to express to you all the sadness on the loss of so many innocent lives in Christchurch, New Zealand. The world is a lesser place without them, but I know they are in heaven. I ask Allah to have mercy upon them, forgive them for any shortcomings and make it easy for them in the hereafter. Insha allah.
