Community groups step in to help Syrians

From organising children’s activities to giving them trauma counselling, volunteers are doing the job of aid agencies.

While many Syrians flee the violence, there are millions more inside the country in desperate need of help.

Aid agencies have been unable to get unhindered access to most areas but that has not stopped local community groups from stepping in.

In the suburbs of the capital Damascus, one local group is organising activities for children and giving them trauma counselling.

Al Jazeera spoke to Um Mohammad, one of the women working there.
