For the last few weeks, the Carillon has been working with the World University Service of Canada's Regina chapter to bring you the stories of refugees brought to the University of Regina by WUSC. These stories came to you in the refugees' own words.
The stories were in advance of WUSC's upcoming mock refugee camp, a two-day event being held in the Research & Innovation Centre atrium on Monday and Tuesday. In addition to the stories, two of the refugees, Jacob Panchol and Manie Wollel, consented to an interview, along with Jessica Brown of WUSC. Full disclosure: due to the sensitive nature of the piece, we consented to let Jacob and Manie work with Jessica to develop some questions in advance, and in this interview I largely work off of that sheet; however, there are a couple of exceptions.
