U.S. Embassy Hosts Second Virtual Ramadan Youth Gathering
April 29, 2021

Alumni of cultural and educational exchange programs attended the U.S. Embassy’s second virtual youth gathering, hosted by Chargé d’Affaires Margaret Nardi. The participants engaged with CDA Nardi in a question-and-answer session on the values and traditions of the holy month of Ramadan. They also discussed how COVID-19, and Bahrain’s preventative measures, affected the tradition of family gatherings and hosting activities while still preserving the spirit of Ramadan. Every year, the embassy hosts a youth Iftar, but due to continuing social distancing, this year’s gathering was held virtually.
