Aleppo's "Cat Man"

BBC News, Return of the cat man of Aleppo

"The cat man of Aleppo, Mohammad Aljaleel, touched the hearts of millions when his sanctuary featured in a BBC video in 2016 (above). He had to leave the city when it fell to Syrian government forces, but he's now back - in an area nearby - and helping children as well as animals, reports Diana Darke." There's a strong internet theme to this, given that this is a channel through which this charitable endeavour can get publicity and donations.
