Summary
When the Syrian civil war forced the people of Aleppo to flee their homes, thousands of the city's pets were abandoned. Heartbroken by the desperate situation, ambulance driver Alaa Aljaleel vowed to stay behind, caring for the children and pets caught in the crossfire. He built a cat sanctuary for Aleppo's helpless creatures, and named it after his kitten Ernesto, who he had rescued from the streets of rubble
