Many migrant workers are not fluent in the official languages of the countries where they work. It is difficult for them to get updated information about the local situations and policies about coronavirus. Also It is hard for them to understand how and where to get support for infection prevention. This makes them more vulnerable than other communities.

To solve this problem, some NGOs created infection prevention handbooks in multiple languages to help migrant workers understand how to protect themselves from coronavirus, how to get support, and where to find resources. These handbooks also provide information about the local regulations and policies for infection prevention and control.

This is really helpful. I live in a community that has tens of thousands of refugees and I worry that they aren't able to understand important information. This is a great solution. Thanks for sharing!
