IR USA's Abed Ayoub Meets with Southern California Leaders

Abed Ayoub, CEO of Islamic Relief USA, met on Wednesday May 5, with leaders and representatives from Muslim organizations throughout Southern California to discuss the organization's plans for future relief and charity work. Many of the attendees found the meeting fruitful.

“I am so proud to see Islamic Relief provide this space where Muslim organizations can come together and share their thoughts and ideas on how to better represent this American Muslim community,” said a board member from a local mosque.

The meeting, held in Orange County, was part of a series of community meetings Islamic Relief USA’s CEO has been holding with community leaders across the country. The night before, a similar meeting was help in the San Fernando Valley with local leaders.

Over dinner, Ayoub presented Islamic Relief USA’s work and future plans, followed by a much-appreciated question and answer session.

Ayoub discussed the progress Islamic Relief USA has been making in its efforts to alleviate poverty across the world. He thanked the leadership and the community for being the backbone of support that has made this progress possible.

One of the goals of these meetings is to maintain an open dialogue with the community and receive its input in the work Islamic Relief USA is involved in. Among the many attendees were representatives from organizations such as the Islamic Shura Council of So. Calif., Council on American-Islamic Relations, Muslim American Society, and local mosques from in and around Orange County.
