Syrian aid groups seek greater role
18 March 2015 (IRIN ), Local NGOs and diaspora groups involved in frontline aid delivery in Syria want more recognition from the wider humanitarian community as well as the chance to access direct funding, rather than working merely as silent implementers for international NGOs.
