The recent Paris attacks have left over 120 people dead and more than 350 people injured.
As a gesture to help out people seeking shelter during the attacks, the phrase “#PorteOuverte” started trending on Twitter. PorteOuverte means ‘Open Door’ and meant that anyone using that hashtag was offering their shelter for the stranded people.
Twitter User @RohanSinghKalsi tweeted this:
Anybody who’s stranded in Paris and needs shelter and somewhere safe, any Sikh Gurdwara (temple) will be happy to accommodate #PorteOuverte
