Afif Ramadi is a retired civil engineer who enjoys researching the history of Ramadi, Iraq and supporting various charitable organizations.
Education & Career
Afif Ramadi obtained his degrees in Civil Engineering from the College des Freres and Universite de Liege. During his time as a student, Ramadi enjoyed embracing extra curricular activities as a way to engage in lessons outside of the classroom. In particular, he enjoyed traveling with his school’s Ski Club. Although the now retired Civil Engineer no longer races down the slopes, he still enjoys the great outdoors!
In his retirement, he hasn’t given up on his engineer identity, or his love of nature. Now, he intertwines the two worlds by dabbling in Agricultural Engineering projects on his farm. A man driven by education and knowledge, he thoroughly enjoys learning new techniques and tactics that he can implement in his own backyard! His farm has become his sanctuary, allowing him to both relax and continue his passion for engineering in his retirement.
Historian & Humanitarian
Outside of his farming endeavors, Afif Ramadi has also embraced historical research in his retirement. In particular, he enjoys digging deep to uncover long forgotten tales of a city with which he shares his name: Ramadi, Iraq. Studying the history of Ramadi has helped him develop a deep connection to his own culture. With history often repeating itself, his research has also opened his eyes to the devastation being faced by current citizens of Ramadi. This realization has prompted the historian to take on the role of humanitarian by supporting a number of charitable organizations and nonprofits.
Afif Ramadi is proud to say that he supports the efforts of:
- The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)
- Caritas Internationalis
- No More Victims
- Afif Charity Foundation
Although he is retired, this former civil engineer turned history-driven humanitarian is as active as ever! In fact, he hopes to intertwine his passions even further by developing nonprofit educational history programs for disadvantaged communities.
