Edgar Sandoval Sr. President and CEO
Edgar Sandoval Sr. is the current President and CEO of World Vision U.S. Born in Los Angeles, Sandoval grew up in Central and South America, where he first witnessed poverty. His own experience with hardship came at age 18, when he returned alone to the U.S. with only $50 in his pocket.
“It’s true everywhere we work: World Vision staff responding to the needs of the most vulnerable children and communities in dire circumstances and in the highest risk situations. That’s what we are called to. That’s what we’ve done for more than 70 years. One staff member in Latin America said it best: our response to this pandemic is not business as usual. It is mission as usual.”
