From Far and Wide

From Far and Wide

From Far and Wide is a series of stories profiling the Canadians who have welcomed Syrian refugees with compassion and support.

Across the country, strangers, friends, families and communities are creating powerful bonds of friendship that transcend language and culture, at a time when they are needed most.

From a tight-knit group in the Yukon who took in a family of 11, to the Syrian seamstress who became a part of the community fabric, join us as UNHCR meets just some of them.
Canada. From far and wide.

We, as Canadians, are the fortunate ones to have them here with us. We are better for it.
