BBC helps Radio Pacis

Radio Pacis in Ugandan has launched another FM frequency thanks to the prize money it won at the BBC Africa Radio Awards in 2007. The Arua-based Catholic radio station won the New Station of the Year category and was awarded five thousand dollars to buy equipment.

The competition's final panel of four expert judges, led by former BBC World Service broadcaster Robin White, were impressed by Radio Pacis's contribution to knowledge and development in the area.

Robin said: "Radio Pacis is a fine example of what a community radio station outside the capital can do. It may have few staff and modest resources, but it still addresses challenging issues including providing advice on medical and health problems. It also offers debate on matters of local interest alongside local and national news."
