Probably not many of you heard of Maaloula near Syrian capital Damascus which was a major tourist attraction before the civil war. It is known as one of only three places where people still speak a version of Aramaic, a biblical language. Religiously, the population consists of both Christian and Muslims living next to each other for centuries. The village is boasting the remains of numerous monasteries (two still standing and occupied), convents, churches, shrines and sanctuaries defying ages. Many pilgrims come to Maaloula, both Muslims and Christians. However since last year many people leave the town trying to escape the violence of war and seeing no future, others decided to stay. Let's not forget about them othervise the very unique place and culture that lasted millenniums will be gone forever. Thanks for every penny, money will be sent to the local community there.
