On February 23rd, Mentor Arabia held its 7th Board of Trustees Meeting at the Movenpick Hotel in Beirut. The meeting was presided by the Foundation’s President HRH Prince Turki BinTalal, and attended by Vice President of the Board Mr. Faisal Al Mutawa, Executive Director Dr. Farida Allaghi, along with consulting members and representatives of the Foundation’s Scientific and Youth Committees and staff.
First on the agenda was the progress report for the implementation of the operational plan as approved at the 6th BOT meeting held in Dubai last year.
After going through several other financial and management reports, it was then time for Mr. Ramzi Barakat, Creative & Managing Director of B Creative, an advertising boutique agency based in Beirut, to present his concept and work for the Fundraising Kit which the Foundation has been developing with Mr. Barakat for the past few months. His concept of “HELL – HELLO – HELLP”, which highlights the issue of drugs in the Arab world as hell and the need to start a conversation with all the necessary parties in the region, was unanimously appreciated and approved by all the attendees.
The attendees then moved on to discuss the plans for the year ahead (2012) and other pending issues.
