There is a gentleman in Syria known as THE CAT MAN OF ALEPPO. He is Mohammed Alaa Ajaleel who just goes by Alaa, an ambulance driver. He earned this title by selflessly staying behind to help feed all the abandoned and stray kitties in that bombed out city, as well as creating a sanctuary for them, using his own funds.
The kids of Aleppo could also come to visit and experience some semblance of normalcy by interacting with the cats and dogs too. The first sanctuary was bombed and some of those precious kitties died, however, he was later able to find a new place further away where it was relatively safer, it seemed, until recently when a lone suicide bomber exploded a bomb in an area where Mr Alaa and other helpers from Syria Charity was handing out toys and treats to children. People were injured and many of the children died. Mr. Alaa's only mode of transportation, his vehicle for transporting animals to the new sanctuary was also destroyed during this bombing. Also recently, a zoo owner who could no longer afford to look after or feed the few animals he had left, a couple tigers, bears and some monkeys asked Mr. Alaa to to look after them, so now along with the cats ands dogs, are these bigger animals.
