Unrest in Syria has led to many fleeing the country for shelter.
As one of the nations to allow those escaping the violence to enter, Algeria is the safe haven to more than 12,000 Syrian refugees, according to some statistics.
Without any source of income, many Syrian refugees live in shabby conditions, sleeping out on the street and some begging for a living.
To improve the refugees' living conditions, a number of Algerian volunteers began to provide accommodation, clothes and food to them.
All the spending for helping the refugees is donated by the Algerian public.
This owner of a pizza shop is one of the many volunteers.
Every day, the pizza shop will send food and daily necessities to more than 200 refugees at nearby squares.
Staff members of the pizza shop begin preparing food at 1pm during the holy month of Ramadan to guarantee that all the refugees can get dishes by dusk to break their fast.
“Originally, I and my friend planned to provide food for only 20 refugees. But the number soon rose up to 150 and now it is 200 people,” the owner of the pizza shop said.
The United Nations estimates that there more than 140,000 refugees living in makeshift camps inside Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and other countries.
