US Embassy Hosts a Virtual Ramadan Youth Gathering

May 10, 2020

Over 64 US Embassy alumni of cultural and educational exchange programs attended the US Embassy’s virtual Ramadan youth gathering hosted by US Ambassador Justin Siberell.  The participants engaged with Ambassador Siberell in a question and answer session on COVID-19 and the American and Bahraini efforts to combat this pandemic. They also discussed how different Ramadan is this year in light of the compliance with the precautionary measures taken against the spread of the virus.  Every year, the embassy hosts a youth Iftar but due to social distancing this year, the Iftar was replaced with a virtual discussion with the Ambassador.
