Abed Ayoub Tapped for USAID Advisory Post

    Abed Ayoub, the chief executive officer of Islamic Relief USA, was tapped to sit on the Advisory Committee on Voluntary Foreign Aid of the U.S. Agency for International Development, a press release from the non-governmental organization announced. The committee was created in 1946 to link the U.S. government with NGOs involved in international relief, rehabilitation and development work. Ayoub will serve a two-year term from April 2010 to March 2012.

    “I think this is a great opportunity to have the Muslim voice heard and to show the Islamic perspective on issues that affect the world’s needy,” Ayoub noted. “We hope to be able to make a contribution to this prestigious committee.”
