A video showing two refugee children excited about their first snowfall is going viral on Twitter. The children, bundled in thick coats, are shown excitedly running around outside. They spin and dance in the falling snow, collecting some in their hands.

It's a beautiful scene.

The children and their family are refugees from Eritrea, an African country with an extremely repressive regime. They are some of the lucky few to escape. They were living in a refugee camp in Sudan before being able to travel to Canada, where they are currently being housed by Rebecca Davies.

The video was posted to Twitter, where many found it inspiring. It was even retweeted by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.









In Canada, refugees can be brought to the country through private sponsorship. Even still, it can be a long and arduous process. This family was able to make it thanks to fundraising from the Rosedale United Church. Canada has expanded its immigration policy in recent years to accept more refugees. They plan to welcome around a million new immigrants over the next few years.

It seems like the program is doing a bit of good.





The family will be living with Davies for about a year while they settle in Canada.

After we've watched a movie, it can be difficult to imagine the film as a project that took months or years to finally culminate into the product we see at the theater or on our television.
