Like many people in their early twenties, George was preoccupied with school, friends, and finding a girl. He also played basketball and hoped to use his talents to pursue his dreams.
As the fighting grew worse, it took a toll on George’s will to continue. Friends and family had fled the neighborhood; some had been killed. George felt afraid and alone. Then one day, after talking to a friend who volunteered as an ambulance driver for the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC), George decided to sign up, too.
That decision changed his life.
