Rosa Candia

Born in Chile, Rosa fled in 1974 after a military coup. A political refugee, she settled in Winnipeg, and started volunteering at Cuso International’s Winnipeg office.


After Chile’s dictatorship dissolved, Rosa returned to Chile with a scholarship to study the resettlement process.


As a member of the diaspora, Rosa knew that she could bring value to Chile and connected with Cuso International about volunteer opportunities. Her perspective was shared in her volunteer and Cuso International Diaspora Program Coordinator roles.
