This Amazing Man Stayed Behind in War Torn Aleppo, Syria To Care for the City’s Abandoned Cats

Mohammad Alaa Jaleel, an incredibly brave and compassionate man who lives in the Masaken Hanano neighborhood of war-torn Aleppo, Syria, has taken it upon himself to care for the increasing number of cats who have been left behind by families fleeing for safety.

Alaa has set up a small sanctuary named “La Casa Dei Gatti Ernesto“, a place where the cats can feel safe and be fed. Not only does this amazing man take care of the abandoned cats, but his day job as a paramedic has him taking care of anyone who needs his help, especially children.

Because of his big heart, Alaa has gained a great many admirers, including some who rightfully want to nominate him for a Nobel Prize.
