STATEMENT MADE BY AMBASSADOR-AT-LARGE MR. RAMI EL-ATTAR:
The distribution of these essential meals will be an ongoing initiative as an embedded campaign until the end of the Holy Month of Ramadan. We expect to distribute starting today May 8th, the first wave of meals of the 30k we are planning to distribute in Beirut to the needy population and others. The Holy Month of Ramadan gives us a chance to reflect on our lives and the need to help others who are not as lucky as we are. The COVID-19 Pandemic has shown us that life is fragile and that we are not as strong as we
think we are. The Pandemic has humbled all of us in a profound way forever. We must stand together against COVID19. We all need to do all we can to help those in need under the umbrella of IIMSAM. I want to thank the “Conglomerate” of various entities and individuals which has made possible the implementation of this exo-humanitarian activity that will approximately assist 4,500+ individuals in need in Beirut, my home country of Lebanon. We will be updating the distribution process during this latter part of May as the Holy Month of Ramadan 2020 comes to completion. I would have loved to be in Beirut during this period of distribution. However, unfortunately, I am unable to travel due to the Covid-19 travel-restrictions. Otherwise, I would be there on the ground with the team.

IIMSAM’S “Pro Bono,” Hon. Ambassador-At-Large Mr. Rami El-Attar noble initiative to support the efforts in the battle against COVID-19, particularly during this Holy Month of Ramadan. Amb. El-Attar was the second to initiate a humanitarian activity in fighting Covid-19. On 22 March 2020. He distributed 2000 masks and gloves to civil society, philanthropic entities in Dubai.
