A group of local activists in the northern Homs province have established an independent civilian body to improve the living conditions of displaced people.
The team aims to link displaced people with service agencies, as well as provide them with assistance in various domains including education and relief.
More than 10,000 displaced families in the northern countryside of Homs have been suffering under the regime-imposed siege amid a shortage in humanitarian aid and basic supplies.
Seven activists are responsible for key tasks such as management and financial affairs, with around 30 volunteers spread throughout the northern Homs countryside.
