Scrabbling desperately, she finds something to hold onto on the wall of the mineshaft. The water is cold and dark and full of old pieces of rusty metal. Her body heat keeps the boy alive.
We’re okay, she shouts up to the other children.

Biography of THE WHITE HELMETS in Short
Every day, bombs fall on Syrian homes, hospitals and schools. Some contain old nails or pieces of metal and some contain poisonous gas. Most of the bombs are dropped by the Syrian government. They say they’re targeting terrorists but it’s ordinary people who are dying.
And when those ordinary people are trapped under the rubble of collapsed buildings, desperately calling for help. it’s the White Helmets who risk their lives to save them.
The White Helmets, officially called Syria Civil Defence, come from many different backgrounds and religions, they range from engineers to painters and teachers to tailors. They are volunteers, without weapons, who help anyone who needs it, regardless of what side of the conflict they’re fighting on.
The volunteers rescue trapped people, administer first aid, and recover bodies so they can be given proper burials. So far, they’ve saved over 114,431 lives.
In some very religious parts of Syria, it is forbidden for men to rescue women, and so two women’s bands of the White Helmets have formed.
After raising over S100,000 in donations, the women’s arm of the operation now has six ambulances and one hundred volunteers.
The White Helmets also play a crucial role in capturing on video everything that has happened in Syria. Using their footage, organizations can work out whether bombs have been dropped on civilians. In April 2018, it was their recordings that proved the Syrian government had let off poison gas, killing eighty-three of their own people.
Due to political reasons, both the Russian and Syrian government have tried to spread lies about the White Helmets being linked to terrorists. It hasn’t stopped them doing what they set out to do. They know a life saved is worth everything. Nothing will prevent them from trooping out during bomb raids to haul debris aside, searching for survivors.
Biography of THE INNOCENCE PROJECT in Short
The Austrian village of Bad Mitterndorf sits among snowcapped mountains and rolling green meadows. For Thomas, it was a beautiful but lonely place to grow up in, especially after he realized he was more attracted to boys than girls. There was no gay community and no one to talk to about his feelings. He felt different and thought there was something wrong with him.
In the attic of his house, Thomas would dress up in skirts and dresses. It was only when he was alone that he felt he could be who he really was. Then, after moving to a bigger city and studying fashion, he began to feel more and more comfortable expressing himself. To show it, he created a character for himself named Conchita Wurst.
Conchita has dark, mysterious eyes, long, silky hair, and a perfectly shaped beard She dresses in glamorous dresses and sings in a roaring, tender voice.
On September 10th 2013, Conchita was chosen by Austria to represent them at the Eurovision song contest.
Many people rallied around Conchita, not just because of her beautiful performances, but because a vote for her would be a vote against homophobia and old-fashioned attitudes about how people should be.
There were some harsh comments, especially from countries where gay people still fight to earn the same rights as everyone else. But they didn’t shake Conchita.
On the night of the Eurovision final, she appeared on stage in an intricate golden gown, and sang a song about battling through dark times, staying true to herself, and rising from the ashes like a phoenix
With 290 points, Conchita became Austria’s first Eurovision winner in over fifty years. As an audience of 170 million people around the world watched, she proudly raised the trophy and announced, We are unity and we are unstoppable
It was a victory, not just for Austria not just for Conchita or Thomas, but for everyone who’s ever felt like they didn’t quite fit in.
