February 9, 2023



(BBC) βΈ» Thousands of people have offered to adopt the baby girl who was born under the rubble of a collapsed building in north-west Syria, following Monday's earthquake. Aya, meaning miracle in Arabic, was still connected to her mother by her umbilical cord when she was rescued. She is now in stable condition and has received dozens of calls from people all over the world wanting to adopt her. In Aya's home town of Jindayris, people have been searching through collapsed buildings for loved ones. Rescuers from the White Helmets are helping in Jindayris, where 3,000 deaths have been reported, including those in opposition-held areas.
