Amer Fakhoury Foundation has been created to honor the late US hostage Amer Fakhoury.
Amer Fakhoury was kidnapped while on a family vacation in Lebanon in September of 2019. Due to the torture and maltreatment he received while being illegally detained, he died on August 17, 2020 shortly after he was released. The foundation's mission is to help hostages and many other illegally detained individuals get released, and to help families of illegally detained individuals financially and emotionally.
The goal of the foundation is to fight injustice, torture and abuse happening in prisons around the world, and to support victims and their families to overcome these tragedies.
