Canada Could Be Getting 20,000 African Refugees
Displaced by war in their countries.
A group called The African Diaspora Association of the Maritimes based out of Halifax, is asking the government of Canada to help bring in 20,000 refugees from Africa who have been displaced by war.
The group is asking for the same help the government gave to the Syrians refugees last year.
According to CBC, the world's biggest refugee camp in the world is located in Kenya and counts nearly 250,000 people. Some people have been living in these camps for almost 20 years, and some were even born there.
The African Diaspora Association of the Maritimes says they aren't against Syrian refugees, they just want the same kind of help for Africa, because the refugee camps in Africa existed well before the Syrian conflict broke out. They believe the situation in Africa is simply more dire.
