“I’m do this work because I want to give back some of what I’ve been given and because I believe in these young people.”

Marlon Velasquez, National Director, Hermano mayor

When Marlon came to NPH Honduras at age 15, the home had fewer than one dozen kids. He grew up alongside the home. Years later he became national director in Honduras before moving on to the leadership role in NPH Nicaragua. As an hermano mayor who worked closely with Father Wasson, Marlon readily shares the wisdom of Father Wasson with the NPH family. It fuels his own passion for the mission of NPH.
