A backpack filled with games, toiletries and undergarments was given to Nadiia Kuzniak's son when the family arrived in Canada after fleeing Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Inside the backpack was a note from a 13-year-old Canadian boy.

“Welcome to Canada. I hope these things make your stay here better. I'm sorry about what is happening to your country. I am praying for you and I hope you like staying in Canada,” the note said in English and Ukrainian.
