WHEREAS, we recognize Fatima Abu Eid, from the 7th Cook County District as the founder and Executive Director of Social Services Assisting Neighborhood Arab-American Development (“SANAD”).  We applaud Ms. Abu Eid, who founded SANAD as a result of her own challenging immigrant experiences.  SANAD is a culturally sensitive social service agency which offers assistance to Arab women on Chicago’s South Side, but is open to all.
