Have you read about Mohammed Alaa Aijaleel, the cat man of Aleppo? His world revolves around the many cats left homeless in the war-torn city. He has built a shelter and he cares for numbers of cats. https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-man-saving-aleppos-homeless-kittens
Here’s a story that ran in 2015 when Aijaleel was feeding around 150 homeless pets—mostly cats. http://www.newsweek.com/2015/12/25/abandoned-house-cats-aleppo-405528.html
And here’s a story about how Aijaleel’s efforts are also helping children. http://www.middleeasteye.net/in-depth/features/cat-sanctuary-aleppo-helps-heal-animals-and-children-920607503
While I usually add my commentary to the stories I share in this blog, I’m going to let these reports speak for themselves. I think you’ll find the stories touching.
