A hope in hell

An ambulance driver has been buying meat every day to feed abandoned cats in a neighbourhood ravaged by war in Syria.

A man known only as Alaa has been spending about $4 (£2.50) each day on meat for the strays for the past two months.

Without Alaa to care for them, the animals would likely starve in the largely deserted district of Masaken Hanano in Aleppo. He told Reuters about 150 cats rely on him for food.

Residents fled the area because of shelling from forces loyal to Syria's president Bashar Al-Assad.

The ongoing civil war in Syria has displaced an estimated 6.5 million people, with Aleppo suffering some of the worst devastation.

By August 2014, the death toll from three years of fighting had risen to more than 191,000.

What a wonderful man. Lucky cats. I hope that an organisation or individuals will offer to donate some money, to help this man continue with his good deeds.
