News for refugees: "Refugee Radio"

Tens of thousands of refugees have already fled to Germany or are still on their way. Most of them do not speak German. To assist refugees from many different countries to get settled and to obtain relevant information, NDR (North German Public Radio & TV) is now broadcasting news for refugees in English and Arabic.

NDR Info Spezial carries "Refugee Radio" from Monday to Friday at 11:55 and 23:55. The internet link to the latest edition is on top of this page. The news shows contain up-to-date-information as well as political discussions about refugee issues - in Germany and in the countries that refugees pass through on their way to Germany. In addition, listeners will find useful information on topics like health, law, integration as well as reports on volunteer initiatives supporting refugees.

"Refugee Radio" is a joint project of Funkhaus Europa and German public radio stations WDR, RBB and Radio Bremen.

Listen to NDR Info Spezial via digital radio DAB+ (with special receivers, available in electronic shops) or online via live stream on your PC or mobile phone (wifi or data flat rate recommended).
