This is a project that we started during the lock-down period in March 2020, as we weren’t able to carry on with our birthday celebrations, and wanted to reach out to Farsi-speaking people safely who weren’t able to follow the Greek or English news. We informed them about the new regulations concerning the Covid-19 restrictions as well as other Greek news updates. This podcast has now become a part of our organization. It is not only a news update but also an opportunity for listeners to offer their contributions.
There is e.g. an Iranian DJ offering his music program, as well as authors reading from their books, or singers performing through video. Radio Younan helps in this way to motivate listeners, to start as well as a new life in Greece, to integrate them into Greece through the updates about news, laws and customs and last but not least to blend the different refugee cultures.
