Khaled El Mayet grew up in UK, half British and half Libyan; being proud of both but identifying as neither.
He grew up recognizing humans as who they are, not where they came from.
One of the last things his mother said to him before passing away was “to do what you can to show that love is greater than hate.”
These words echoed loudly as Khalid felt a moral obligation to the humanitarian crisis unfolding with the invasion of Ukraine in 2022.
Years prior in 2011 during the Arab Spring, Khaled was involved in delivering two ambulances to North Africa from the UK. In response to the war in Ukraine he organized and delivered 10 ambulances to Global Outreach Doctors in Poland. GoDocs utilizes these units to transport casualties needing emergent care as well as offer primary care services.
In a press speech by United States secretary of state Antony Blinken on March 9th, 2022 Khaled was directly cited as a UK citizen doing his part to support our Ukraine brothers and sisters. Now he continues supporting other grassroots philanthropic endeavors by sharing his knowledge and experience to multiply needed support.
In his personal life, Khaled enjoys playing games and reading bedtime stories to his young daughter.
