Syria's White Helmets : A symbol of peace and hope

Syria has incurred a devastating toll from its bloody civil war. Now in its fifth year, more than 215,000 have been killed; nearly 4 million have fled; and the United Nations says the life expectancy has dropped 20 years from 76 to 56. Yet in the face of this unrelenting brutality, heroes have emerged.
When the bombs rain down on Syria, it is the White Helmets who run in to help. These brave volunteers claw and saw their way through the rubble to save those buried beneath. One video shows them pulling a 2-week-old baby alive after it had spent 16 hours trapped under a flattened house. At a training session in a neighboring country, the volunteers learned how to break through concrete and put out fires.
