The Syrian Civil Defense Corps, known as The White Helmets, constantly seeks new volunteers to attend training classes on rescue and first aid, in part due to the constant loss of aid workers in dangerous rescue operations in Eastern Ghouta, on the outskirts of Damascus.

This video shot in Zamalka shows volunteers undergoing training classes to increase their preparedness for their next rescue mission. It also follows Civil Defense volunteers on a real-life rescue mission, where they hurry to the site of a bomb blast to rescue victims and perform critical first aid.

Thousands of refugees entered Austria on foot from Hungary on Saturday and Sunday. Austria and Germany opened borders for them after they got stuck in Budapest train station Keleti for several days. Refugees walked on foot and were later taken by 60 buses from Hungarian authorities to the border which they crossed on foot. After stopping buses, some people decided to walk to Austria, some were donated with train and bus tickets from Hungarian citizens and charities and some were driven to the border by people in private cars.
In Austria, exausted refugees got warm welcome from Red Cross people, social workers of Bundeswehr and volunteers. People donated food, drinks, clothes, toys to them.
In the bordertown of Nickelsdorf, refugees can rest and wait for trains and buses to Vienna and Germany. German police took controll over the situation and trains are guarded by German policemen. Refugees wait near railway station or in the hangar built originally for famous Nova Rock music festival. There are hygienical facilities, warm blankets, field beds, food, drinks, donated clothers and shoes. For children, toys and various activities are prepared.
Numbers of refugees resting in hangar are changing. At this time, approximately 300 people are waiting for next transport to Germany. Another 100 is waiting in the railway station. For those crossing the border by foot, the buses are waiting directly there and transport them to the train.
„Austria is perfect,“ thanks Ibrahim, young man from Syria for everything. „Austrian people gave us smile, hug, food. We feel welcomed here.“ They blame Hungary for getting them closed in railway station in Budapest with no facilities and for police actions they experienced there. Despite all, children are full of energy. They discover new toys and want to try each facility the hangar and outside land offer to them. They can draw, paint, bicycle, play footbal, take toys which they like. They want to spend every moment by playing and doing things so natural for their age – and different from those they experienced along their journey from war zones.
There are also newborn babies. Nadja whose parents are from Afghanistan was born on the way, in Greece, six weeks ago. Her young mother managed to continue walking to Austria.
Further she will continue in comfortable speed train, offered for free by Austrian and German authorities.
During the weekend, 12 000 asylum seekers entered Austria and continued towards Germany.

I mean in every country you have good people and you have bad people. It does have nothing to do with the nationality. I by myself I own a castle, Schloss Konigshof, that´s in Bruckneudorf, and I should get first refugees next week who will live in my castle because my castle is very big, I have 60 500 square metres just living alone with two dogs. So I said: Okay, there are such a lot of people who are sleeping on the street in Traiskirchen who don´t have anymore a place, living in tents in the street, on the floor. So I open my castle and I will have the people to say: Welcome and live in my castle. Next week I should get the first.
I am here because I want to help that people who are such a long time on the trip to come in a country where is no war, where nobody is behind them, and to help them and to say: Hello, welcome, welcome, welcome.
There were people with who I was crying when the came from the bus. They are so nice. They are coming here with nothing, with flipflops on their feet, and yesterday evening it was so cold and such a wind. And to help them – everybody has to do it. They are human beings and we should all together help them.
