Community members have directly relied on Sagal Radio for the latest updates on the pandemic and efforts by the City of Clarkston and best practices from Ethne Health Clinic. To decrease the spread of the virus and prevent deaths, this information has been translated in various languages by community partners and advocates to emphasize the seriousness of this virus.

Thanks to the efforts of Ethne Health Clinic, Councilwoman Bell, and Send Relief, Sagal Radio was about to proactively inform the community about the Free COVID-19 drive and walk-up testing that took place on April 3rd and 4th.

Moreover, Sagal Radio has been recording, Conversations with Community Leaders – a series of shows to talk pandemic, impact, and safety precautions with community leaders from the Nepalese, Bhutaneses, and Burmese community. This show will continue, and we plan to talk to other community leaders to gain insight and educate our community that uses Sagal as a reliable source.

The first episode that Sagal had started with the Nepalese community leader Mr. Kumar KC, then Bhutanese community leader, Mr. Manoj Gurung, and Burmese Rohingya Community Leader Ayub Mohammad, and this community update is continuing so on.

SAGAL Radio Services and the Executive Board will continue to render services and be the voice of the voiceless!
