Ambassador of Bahrain in Washington congratulates two Shams brothers on winning award from AAM Foundation
The Ambassador of the Kingdom of Bahrain to the United States of America, Shaikh Abdullah bin Rashid Al Khalifa, congratulated the two Bahraini brothers, Ali and Mohammad Shams, for receiving an award from the America Abroad Media Foundation (AAM) for their work in authoring and writing the drama “Umm Haroun,” affirming that the continuous support from the leadership has created a stimulating environment in the Kingdom that has enabled Bahraini youth to achieve in all fields, including the technical field, so that the Kingdom today embraces an innovative generation of Bahraini youth.
The Ambassador added that the award which shed light on the history of the Jewish community in the Arab Gulf region, presented by the Foundation to the two Shams brothers for writing the series, is also a tacit recognition by the American Foundation of the peaceful coexistence and respect for religions represented by the Bahraini model in the region and around the world. This was preserved by the reform approach of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.
Noting that America Abroad Media (AAM) works to empower local voices to express global values through creativity in content and media programming, by working with its partners in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia regions. At its awards virtual ceremony for this year, the Foundation honored the two brothers Shams, the Kuwaiti artist Hayat Al-Fahad, and the Saudi artist Abdulmohsen El Nemer for their participation in the series Umm Haroun.
