We love them, our departed, even though we don’t have a safe space to pay our last respects.

We wipe the tears quickly, trying to move forward to save those who we may bury tomorrow.

We used to be thousands praying and surrounding those who lost a family member, telling them how we care. Nowadays, walking to graveyards is dangerous. Praying together is dangerous. Waiting for a family member to come to the funeral is also dangerous.

More than 100 people were killed in #Ghoutaduring the last 24 hours.

We quickly pray for them, bury them as fast as possible, express our condolences to the family, and slowly grieve their loss…

Please help us share the news of our beloved ones to stop the attack on #EasternGhouta.
