According to media reports, over 500 human lives have been lost in the last 11 days of bombing in Syria’s Ghouta, a swathe of towns and farms outside Damascus that is the last major rebel-held area near the capital. The onslaught has been one of the fiercest of the civil war, now entering its eighth year. https://twitter.com/fatimasanashekh/status/969010135954698241 Amidst the bloodbath, an international NGO Khalsa Aid is the saving grace of humanity and empathy in Syria. From free food to shelter to health services, the organization has been serving and rescuing people in war-ravaged Syria with dedication. https://twitter.com/Khalsa_Aid/status/968995259115098115 Even celebrities from the Punjabi entertainment industry are praying for the war affected victims in Syria. Actor-singer Tarsem Jassar also took it to his Insta handle quoting;

The organization says it believes in the Sikh principle of "Recognise the whole human race as one". We get a deluge of calls requesting donations to build gurudwaras, while there is already a minimum of three in almost every village of Punjab. The count in cities is even higher: 10. Don’t we need more hospitals and schools instead? Ravi Singh once told The Tribune. https://twitter.com/Khalsa_Aid/status/907492642581336064 Apart from Jassar, singer Nimrat Khaira also took it to her handle quoting;
