IR USA's Abed Ayoub Meets with Mayor from Arizona

Islamic Relief USA CEO Abed Ayoub met this week with Mayor Scott Smith of Mesa, Arizona. The meeting comes as part of Islamic Relief USA’s ongoing strategy of developing ties with local governments around the United States.

The two leaders discussed developing a Day of Dignity event in Mesa. Day of Dignity is IR USA’s nationwide effort that provides much-needed aid and services to thousands of underprivileged and homeless people every year in cities around the United States. Every year hundreds of Islamic Relief USA volunteers turn out in support. Last year IR USA had a Day of Dignity in 19 cities nationwide and helped nearly 20,000 homeless and underpriveleged individuals.

Ayoub also met with local community leadership and discussed developing ties between IR USA and Mesa’s government in order to better serve the local community and for IR USA to possibly host events in that city. Also discussed was the important role faith-based charities play in serving those in need.
