AHRC is honored to present a tribute to Kayla’s family with whom we stand together united against hate, violence and terror acts anywhere and at any place. Kayla was a true humanitarian who devoted her life to helping and aiding various disadvantaged groups. She helped Palestinian refugees under the Israeli occupation as well as Syrian refugees who were displaced as a result of the ongoing conflict and war. Kayla put her life on the line just to lend a helping hand to those who are in dire need of help.
Kayla is a role model in her dedication to serving humanity. She represents America at its best, working tirelessly to alleviate the suffering of people in need. Her parents will continue her work through Kayla’s Hands (www.kaylashands.org), a non-profit foundation created in Kayla’s name to alleviate suffering and promote a just peace.
“We are very excited about the banquet. The level of support that we are getting from people from all walks of life is truly inspiring and is indicative of the level of commitment to human rights that good people have. We promise an inspiring evening at our banquet, the highlight of which is honoring a woman I consider a personal hero and a role model, Kayla Mueller,” said Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director.
“We are extremely grateful for the support we are getting from our friends and supporters- remarkable people and champions of human rights. I am looking forward to personally thanking our friends and supporters on April 10, 2015,” said Dr. Opada Alzohaili, AHRC President.
