Despite everything that is going wrong at the moment, Abdel’s efforts are turning out to be the guiding light for many. The man, whose video has now gone viral on the internet, can be seen offering water to an injured pigeon after the blast. The bird probably lost one of its eyes due to the city blast.

In the video, shared by The New York Times’ Middle East correspondent Vivian Yee, Abdel can be seen offering water to the bird in the bottle cap. It helps the injured bird in feeding water.

Vivian shared the video, writing, “Just went back to my shattered Beirut neighborhood for the first time since the explosion. One of the first people I saw was this Syrian man, Abdel Salam, who was ever-so-gently pouring water into a bottle cap for this one-eyed injured pigeon to drink.”
