With the ongoing Syrian refugee crisis, 25-year-old Malaysian travel blogger Rayyan Haries has decided to lend a helping hand to the refugees with his Volunteer Cook Kitchen.

The bubbly volunteer is currently feeding the unfortunate Syrian refugees on the island of Lesbos in Greece, and has been doing so for the past one and a half months.
