An Arabic interpreter who supports interpreting across hospitals in Western Sydney has received top honours from the NSW Government.

The All Graduates Interpreting and Translating Language Services Medal was awarded to Chamoun Salameh Bechara as part of the 2020 Premier’s Multicultural Community Medals.

Mr Bechara leads interpreting services for the Western Sydney Health District. He has also led training with TAFE NSW supporting aspiring interpreters from new and emerging community languages.

Acting Minister for Multiculturalism Geoff Lee said it was outstanding to see a local community member recognised with the prestigious medal.

“Mr Bechara has made an outstanding contribution to our local community and our health system across Western Sydney,” Mr Lee said.

“I wholeheartedly congratulated Mr Bechara on his achievements, particularly in light of the novel coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).

“Now more than ever, the tireless work of our community leaders promoting social cohesion and community harmony is vital.

“Incredible leaders like Chamoun, and all interpreters, ensure language is not a barrier to accessing healthcare especially during this critical time.”

Mr Bechara said he felt honoured and privileged to have won the Premier’s Language Services medal.

“I dedicate the medal to my fellow interpreters and translators for being true enablers for our culturally and linguistically diverse communities.”

The Premier’s Multicultural Community Medals are traditionally awarded at the annual Premier’s Harmony Dinner gala event. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Premier’s Multicultural Community Medals were awarded virtually.
