Radio Veritas Asia in Myanmar must prepare to run its own programs as Indian-language services recently moved to their home country, said a co-ordinator of the service.

Father Richard Hla Min Oo from Mandalay Archdiocese, said radio is very important for village people, especially catechists and those working for evangelization, because they could share news and knowledge of Christianity by listening to the RVA programs.

Listeners’ meetings in Tamil, Kayin, Myanmar and Kachin languages are taking place in the dioceses of Yangon, Pathein, Mandalay and Myitkyina until Jan. 25.

Father Oo said listeners like the programs so RVA must work hard to make them relevant to the modern world.

“Finance is not the only problem, finding local contribution to programming is also among our challenges,” Father Oo said.
