Description: Non-Governmental Organizations play a huge role in humanitarian response to crises in the world. They are often the first on the scene of a natural disaster and provide relief in political upheaval. The role of the NGO, or as the term is evolving, Civil Society Organization is changing, the organizations themselves facing financial deficits, and the humanitarian role finding itself increasingly unwelcome and sometimes in danger in its attempt to help those who need it most.
