Ground Zero

Aleppo's Child Nurse

As Assad’s troops and the Free Syrian Army continue to battle in the middle of Aleppo and Syrian doctors try to flee the country, Dar al-Shifa’a hospital serves as the only option for birthing mothers. VICE photographer and videographer Robert King recently visited the hospital, where he met and interviewed a 14-year-old boy nurse who helps deliver babies in the war zone. The teenager explained to Robert the challenges he faces from depleting medical supplies to attending to newborns with no electricity.
