VIDEO: Resettling refugee families in rural Manitoba

Rural communities in many parts of the Prairies have joined the effort to alleviate the plight of refugees escaping war-torn Syria.

Small Manitoba towns such as Altona, Winkler and Morden are doing their part to make room by welcoming seven Syrian families – a total of 45 people – into their communities.

The area has a rich history of refugee support and many locals have been working together to help sponsor the displaced families and assist them in transitioning to their new lives in Canada.

Many preparations have been made to welcome the refugee families’ arrival but the waiting is now over. The plane with the refugees has landed in Winnipeg and those seeking a better life with new hopes and dreams are stepping onto new ground.
