After five years of war, over 400,000 Syrians have been killed and millions more have fled their homes. Hundreds of bombs are dropped on hospitals and schools in rebel-held areas of Syria.

In response to the attacks, the Syrian Civil Defense — also known as the White Helmets — are a group of volunteer rescue workers that rush in to try and save people amid the ruins as bombs continue to fall. Their motto: "To save a life is to save all of humanity."
