Mohammad Alla Aljaleel era conductor de ambulancia. En vez de huir de la ciudad como tantos otros decidió quedarse para ayudar a los heridos por la guerra civil, y pronto se dio cuenta de que también había muchos animales que necesitaban auxilio. Así, Mohammad y un equipo de hombres construyeron el Santuario Ernesto para los Gatos Sirios, que con ayuda de donaciones provenientes de todo el mundo da alimento, casa, cuidados médicos y mucho amor a docenas de gatos, pero también perros, burros, gallinas y hasta búhos en medio de una de las zonas más violentas del mundo.

Mohammad Alla Aljaleel was an ambulance driver/operator. Rather than fleeing from his country’s civil war, he chose to stay after realizing that there were many animals that would need his help. This is how Mohammad and a group of men built the Earnest Sanctuary for Stray Cats, which is kept active through donations from around the world. This sanctuary doesn’t limit aid to cats; it also cares for dogs, donkeys, and owls in some of the world’s most conflict-affected zones.
