Iftar_email_photo_option_4.jpg

Please join the Arab American Institute for our Annual Arab American Generations Iftar on Thursday, June 15th at 8:00 pm. Come break your fast with us, meet,  and share a meal with fellow Arab American professionals in the DMV area.

This year we will be fundraising for Basmeh & Zeitooneh, a nonprofit relief organization based in Lebanon that works to provide relief, psychosocial support, vocational training, and education to Syrian and Palestinian refugees. Established in 2012, the organization now runs programs out of 9 locations in both Lebanon and Turkey, including the Shatila refugee camp. Utilizing a community-based approach, Basmeh & Zeitooneh's community centers have filled a gap that international aid organizations have been unable to address, providing a much-need refuge for entire families to gather and seek support. In just a few short years, the organization has helped 15,000 Syrian refugees in Beirut alone and grown to employ more than 100 full-time staff. For more information about Basmeh & Zeitnooheh's work, please visit their website.

*please note that the event will start at 8 pm, iftar (the breaking of the fast) is at 8:35 pm, but guests are more than welcome to come to our offices earlier.
