Refugee children play in the snow for the first time

Inspiration

Toronto based, The Ripple Refugee Project, shared an emotional clip of of two refugee children, recently settled in Canada - excited, joyfully dancing outside, as the snow falls in their backyard.

The video has captured the hearts of many, including prime minister, Justin Trudeau, who shared in on Twitter.

"Amazing - now convince them that shovelling is fun and you're all set. Thank you for everything you do, Rebecca. #WelcomeToCanada," Trudeau tweeted.

The kids spend years in refugee camps, together with their mother, who fled from a Erithrea, where a military dictator rules over the country.

She hopes her video will show people that, “we have a common humanity” and reactions from people make her “hopeful in this climate of fear and hate.”
