Rescue for people in Syria

by:Julia Lehmann

As the war in Syria goes on, the number of civil victims is climbing constantly. The White Helmets - or the Syrian Civil Defence - are a group of volunteers who try to rescue people in danger and offer help where it's needed the most. So far they have saved lifes of more than 2.000 people by getting them out of the risk zones during heavy bomb attacks. But their equipment is reduced to a minimum. You can help them to do even more by asking governments for support. Please find more useful information on their website.
