Orlando Vasquez   |    Mennonite Central Committee

Orlando Vasquez is originally from EL Salvador, and came to Canada as a Government Assisted Refugee in 1984. He has been working in refugee issues for about 20 years, and currently works for the Mennonite Central Committee Alberta as an Associate and Program Director. As a person who has been through the refugee process system in Canada, he says he is invested in informing the public about the benefits of welcoming refugees in Canada. The current refugee crisis creates an uneasy feeling and one that motivates him to invite engagement and response.
