The United Nations has interviewed a Syrian family, who resettled in Ireland, as part of a new campaign.
In a tweet to over 11 million followers, the organisation talked to the Fakir family from Dunshaughlin, Co Meath.
The family came to Ireland from Syria last year.
They were the first family to be resettled in Ireland through a community sponsorship programme.
Angham Fakir said: "We arrived just before Christmas. It was the best Christmas ever."
"The first thing that struck me was of how green it is - every shade of green", she said.
"When we arrived, we found a home that was comfortable.
"I've felt a part of a family since the minute I arrived", she added.
Nola Leonard is chair of the Refugee Support Association in Dunshaughlin.
She said: "I spoke in the church, I put a little ad in our local magazine to see would people come and help me - and I got eight or nine great volunteers".
"It has been great to have them as part of the community - basically, they're going to be our friends for the rest of our lives".
Angham added: "I have become motivated to play a positive role in this community, so that I can return the love that has been given to me."

Twenty-two Syrian families were settled in Ireland last December, as part of the Irish Refugee Protection Programme (IRPP).
The 105 people, including 58 children, joined 97 persons resettled to Ireland from Lebanon.
The UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR, has had a continuous presence in Ireland since 1998.
The agency works with the Irish Government, officials and other partners to protect people forced to flee their homes and support them to live their lives with dignity and respect.
