Husam Wafaei, Human Rights Advocate

Husam Wafaei a Syrian Canadian. He is a graduate of the University of Manitoba and a decorated veteran of the Canadian Forces, with whom he served on a number of international campaigns that included Somalia, Bosnia, the Gulf War, the Sinai, Congo, and Rwanda.

He was also involved in various other UN and NATO operations. During the course of his military career, Husam has travelled around the globe. Although these engagements at times were perilous, Husam is a true student of human nature, and he welcomed these opportunities to observe the cultures and daily lives of people in lands near and far.
Husam spent his childhood in a country which was destabilized by various factors: the collapse of colonialism, regional politics, the Cold War, the turmoil of Middle East war, or the tension of its ever-present threat. His travel experiences have exposed him to human dilemmas in different world venues. Through his personal and professional experiences, he has seen human sufferings at different world stages, and has witnessed the profound strength of individuals to overcome seemingly impossible odds for freedom.
Husam is the founder and president of the Syrian Canadian Foundation for Humanity.
