Civilians trapped in areas of Aleppo, Syria cut off from aid supplies scramble for precious rations of water. The sounds of shelling have largely subsided in Aleppo this week as a cease-fire went into effect on Monday (Sept. 12), giving civilians hope for renewed supplies of aid, including water, food and medicines. As the five-year civil war has left the local economy in ruins, an indigenous ministry in Aleppo is helping civilians to pay rent and school tuition for their children, as well as providing medical aid and cash for other expenses. The ministry director pleaded for Westerners not to forget suffering civilians in Aleppo. "Thank you for remembering the Syrian people in your prayer," he said. "Thanks to God for His mercy and blessings."
