The brother and sister arrived in Canada last week, from a refugee camp in Sudan.

Their joy at the new weather was captured on camera by their sponsor Rebecca, who is housing the Eritrean family until December.

The Telegraph reports the children in the video are Zebiba, 7, and Khedir, 5, who, along with their mother, arrived in Canada on Thursday, November 8, along with Michael, 3, and 13-month-old Muaid.

The Telegraph says Rebecca, who grabbed her phone as soon as she saw the children reacting this way, said the response to the video has been “hopeful in this climate of fear and hate.”
