Syrian Man Cares for Abandoned Pet Cats

A Syrian ambulance driver named Alaa has been taking care of the cities' cats, abandoned by their owners in the midst of constant shelling over the city of Aleppo, the largest in the war-torn country. 

Alaa spends what amounts to $4.00 USD to purchase raw meat, after which he drives to Masaken Hanano, an area now uninhabited due to bombing. Hundreds of domestic cats, unaccustomed to procuring food for themselves, come running when Alaa appears. 

It's always uplifting to witness the selflessness, empathy and heroism that the human spirit is capable of, even in tragic and desperate circumstances. Via Lost in E Minor
