As war takes a toll on the lives of millions of Syrian civilians, a group of volunteers are risking their own lives to save others.
The White Helmets, a group of unarmed rescue workers, have saved more than 56,000 lives in Syria, according to the group's Twitter page. For the group's feats of relentless heroism, it has been nominated for the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize .
The team's motto "to save a life is to save all of humanity," is something that stands at the core of the team, as does the "impartiality" principle. Three years since its formation, 132 volunteers have been killed saving lives.
"We go to save as many people as we can. If one person was alive that's enough for us to take the risk," said Khaled Farah, a volunteer at White Helmet.
133 organizations have pledged their support for The White Helmets nomination including The Syrian Nonviolent Movement and The Asfari Foundation.
