Another C2 member posted this the other day. I hope this man makes it out alive. A shame for all his service to these animals that he'll not eventually have peace in his life. Now his son is no longer with him so it must be so hard to be away from each other yet he knows if his son stays he might not make it out either.

Food is becoming impossible to find, I've seen other articles, so it is amazing he can even find rice for these cats. This is tragic beyond words.

This is so upsetting. Animals don't have weapons and wars, yet they suffer horribly at the hands of humans, and the anguish their caretaker is suffering is horrible as well!

This makes me very sad, as well as mad as blazes! The horror in Syria needs to end - NOW. So does the nightmare at Standing Rock.

This man is a hero - and an angel. Still under siege and bombardment, Alaa does everything possible to feed all the cats in the area, he added cheese to their diet and he provides families and especially the children with food. Thank you for sharing Christeen.

Now he finds cheese and adds it to their diet and well as feed children. The man is an Earth Angel I just hope he has a long Earth Walk.

May we never find ourselves in a similar situation. I don't know how these people maintain their sanity let alone take care of so many.
