"The number one thing that struck a cord with me was the restoration project of Al Azhar Park in Cairo. That was a huge project and I think seeing the before and after photos, and learning of its impact on the economy and surrounding community - that was great."

"I think Bridges that Unite is a great exhibition that creates immense awareness by sharing with people who are not familiar with the work AKF does. It stands by its name - Bridges that Unite - in partnerhsip with other organizations. It brings back memories of the work that I was involved with in the AKF, most importantly the diversity, pluralism and improving quality of life for people around the world."
