Posters in Arabic, Urdu, Bengali and Somali will appear in GP surgeries across Cardiff to raise awareness of a helpline for parents worried about terrorism and radicalisation.
The NSPCC posters, which will also be written in Welsh and English, will appear in waiting rooms.
The children's charity says the service was set up after a spate of terrorist attacks and the growing problem of extremists targeting children.
We have seen a wave of terrorist attacks in recent weeks and months and both parents and children tell us how frightened they are by what is happening.
The number of calls received by ChildLine only adds to the feelings of fear and sadness that these evil attacks have prompted all over the world.
It is vital that we are able to provide parents with non-judgemental advice on issues ranging from the wider terrorist threat to the dangers of radicalisation.

Over 480,000 people in Wales could be at risk of food poisoning from undercooked burgers this Bank Holiday, according to the Food Standards Agency.
Their research revealed despite 71% of people stating they were concerned about food poisoning, more than a quarter, (28%) would eat a burger that isn't fully cooked through.
Nearly a third of people in Wales also incorrectly believe that eating a rare burger is the same as a rare steak when it comes to food poisoning risk.
It’s important that people realise that burgers are not like steak. Harmful bacteria can be carried on the surface of cuts of meat. When a rare steak is seared these bacteria are killed, but burger meat is minced so bacteria from the surface of the raw meat gets mixed all the way through the burger. These bacteria can remain alive on the inside, unless the burger is fully cooked through, no matter how good quality and expensive the meat.
The Food Standards Agency is encouraging all those planning on using a BBQ this weekend to make sure they cook their burgers all the way through, until steaming hot throughout, with no pink meat in the middle.
