Canadian Kids Welcome Syrian Refugees With An Arabic Song. Warmest Gesture Ever

The night of December 10, Thursday was pretty unexpected for the Syrian refugees who landed in Toronto, Canada from the first refugee plane. The 163 new arrivals from Beirut were personally welcomed at the airport by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and a children's choir sang an old Arabic song greeting their new neighbors. The song sung by the Canadian children is the same song which was sung to Mohamed when he sought refuge.

The list of the heartwarming gestures of The Great White North doesn't end here.

Before the plane carrying the refugees arrived, Trudeau told the airport workers, social workers and volunteers: "This is a wonderful night, where we get to show not just a planeload of new Canadians what Canada is all about, we get to show the world how to open our hearts and welcome in people who are fleeing extraordinarily difficult situations."

The newly arrived people were welcomed with warming smiles and welcome packs.
