Gambling and the Chinese community

Gambling is a serious problem that affects many Australians each year. Its consequences  are devastating too. Unfortunately, only 15 per cent of gamblers seek help.

There are gambling services and helplines out there to help fix this problem in the Chinese community.

The Gamberlers Rehabilitation Services & Overseas Chinese Association social worker and project coordinator, Fong Ung, spoke to Tim Brunero about the gambling problem in the Chinese community in South Australia and how the service is helping many Chinese Australians get their life back on track.

For more information about the Overseas Chinese Association and its services, you can contact them on (08) 8445 1677, or contact Fong on 0403 534 559.
