"Meeting the Moment, Building for Tomorrow"—the theme of our 2020 annual report—captures our response to an eventful year: navigating pandemic limitations to continue to deliver our programs and services, while implementing operational changes that will strengthen our ability to meet future needs. Our mission of creating hope, opportunity, and understanding between Americans and the peoples of the MENA region, a founding principle of the organization’s establishment in 1951, has never been more urgent. As you read our 2020 annual report, we hope that you will come away inspired to support Amideast as we embark on our eighth decade of pursuing this important mission.
