MBEIRUT: An Arab-American businessman’s foundation has put $32 million toward the expansion of the American University of Beirut’s Medical Center, the largest donation in the institution’s 147-year history. 

Jamal Daniel, founder of the Levant Foundation, a nonprofit organization that focuses on the Middle East, said his father, uncle, brother and wife had all gone to AUB. 

“I am humbled to have the opportunity to reinforce our family’s long history with this academic pillar in the Levant,” he said in a press release from AUB Wednesday. 

The money will go toward the AUBMC 2020 Vision, which includes building new clinical and research facilities, buying state-of-the art equipment, and recruiting leading physicians and specialists. 

Daniel is setting a powerful example for individuals wanting to help the Arab world during these turbulent times,” said the chairman of the AUB Board of Trustees, Philip Khoury.
