UNESCO's World Radio Day invites young Syrian radio journalists

By Alison Hird

Where would we be without radio? It's a cheap and accessible way of getting information out to people, even in the most remote of communities. For the fourth edition of World Radio Day organised yesterday at UNESCO , a host of community radios from Africa, Asia, North and South America were invited to broadcast from its Paris headquarters. The guests included Jordanian radios Farah al Nas and Yarmouk FM, broadcasting "The Syrian Hour", serving the over 600,000 Syrian refugees in Jordan.
