I am married,

and I have a daughter.

Her name is Amal.

Kiss me, kiss me.

Don't give Mom a hard time. Okay?

My family is very important to me.

I'm always worrying about them.

I have a strong belief in my work

for the White Helmets.

And every time I'm on a rescue mission,

I think about them.

Abu Omar!

Abu Omar!

Hello. Where is your dad?

Where is Abu Omar?

- He's ready.

- Is he ready?

Okay, tell him to come down

and we'll go to the center.

The morale of the White Helmets

is always high.

We are always ready

to respond to incidents.

But we just hope that the bombing

and air strikes stop.

Mom, where are you?

Do you need anything?

We have to admit that the situation

in Syria is going from bad to worse.

There is no solution on the horizon.

The situation is sad.

Syria is sad.

Before joining the White Helmets,

I was with an armed group.

I fought for the opposition

for three months.

But I saw that the regime's campaign

was targeting civilians.

And I thought, "It is better to do

humanitarian work than to be armed.

Better to rescue a soul

than to take one."

It's the Russians.

Come on, guys, quickly!

Go! Go!

Make a turn and come back!

We, the White Helmets, are the first

to arrive when there is bombing.

If you don't have some courage,

you wouldn't continue doing what we do.

Go here!

Any human being, no matter who they are

or which side they're on,

if they need our help...

it's our duty to save them.

Does anybody need rescuing?

There's nothing. Right?

Abu Feras lives there, but I don't know

whether he was in or out.

- Here?

- He's got an iron door.

We can't get a sense

if he's in or not.

Can we get in via your balcony?

Whenever I'm on a rescue,

I try as hard as possible

to save every person under the rubble,

whether they are young or old.

I consider them all

to be my family.

He usually goes out during the day

and comes back at night.

There's nothing more

upstairs, right?

There's nothing,

but just check on Abu Mahmoud.

Abu Mahmoud!

- There's no one here.

- Thank God.

Brother, ask people about him

and keep an eye out for him.

Don't forget about him.

Whatever you need,

we're the White Helmets.

There are a number of injuries

and possibly two people killed.

There is nothing more.

We're heading back to the center.

I have been with the White Helmets

for three years.

I've seen many people

who have died in bombings.

I've also seen many people

who were rescued alive.

Abu Waleed, give me a crowbar.

I want to look under the mattress.

But the hardest thing

is seeing dead bodies.

This affects me a lot.

Guys, don't come closer.

Get me a corpse bag.

But this is my duty and my job.

I have to do it for the people,

for the civilians.

Only her relatives, please.

People who are not doing anything,

please leave.

Her hand is stuck.

They've struck!

Get down!

On the ground!

The situation is very difficult

in Syria right now.

Especially with Russia's intervention

to support the regime.

They say that they are fighting ISIS,

but they are targeting civilians.

The casualties are rising daily.

The bloodbath is not stopping.

I've lost two colleagues

very dear and precious to my heart.

They were taking part

in a rescue of civilians.

A week before, we had all been together,

working, eating and drinking...

and then they were dead.

Many of my colleagues

have been killed.

In Aleppo city alone,

we've lost 30...

Thirty White Helmets.

Please, Dad, don't leave me.

All lives are precious and valuable.

A child, even if he is not my son,

is like my son.

I cannot explain it.
