    A humanitarian advocate says Cantabrians should be the first Kiwis to welcome refugees ... as they've been on a similar journey

    A humanitarian advocate says Cantabrians should be the first Kiwis to welcome refugees ... as they've been on a similar journey


    The city's open to refugees again after its quota was suspended due to the
    September 2010 earthquake.

    Relief Aid founder Michael Seawright says it can be hard for New Zealanders
    to empathise with the refugee struggle ... but many quake victims can.

    He says it has a major impact on someone's life to be forced from their home
    overnight.
