African Refugees See Snow For The First Time

This heartwarming footage shows the moment two delighted Eritrean refugee children experienced snowfall for the very first time.

A distant experience from that of their earlier years in Africa, the two children can be seen gleefully jumping up and down with excitement as flakes fall all around them in a garden.

In 2015, for the eighth year running, Reporters Without Borders ranked Eritrea under the government of President Isaias Afewerki last in its press-freedom index.

Afewerki currently holds a reported dictatorship over the country, which has seen tens of thousands of Eritreans flee the likes of compulsory military service and the threat of political imprisonment.
