Video Of Eritrean Refugee Kids Experiencing Canadian Snow For The First Time Is Melting Our Hearts ❤️

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.

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
