Care Canada begins online campaign
Ottawa-based humanitarian organization Care Canada has begun an online campaign tied to the arrival of Syrian refugees in Canada. The initiative encourages Canadians to post a video at <http://www.showyoucare.ca> welcoming Syrian arrivals to the country and offering advice for settling here.
"We have been overwhelmed by the positive response from thousands of Canadians across this country to welcome Syrian refugees, be it the tireless local agencies and passionate volunteers asking what they can do to help," said Gillian Barth, president and CEO of Care Canada. "We wanted to give Canadians a chance to speak out, let our new neighbours know they are welcome and create a positive start to their new life in Canada."
