NEW DIRECTOR BRINGS BITE TO A BOARD HUNGRY FOR ACTION
You can never accuse Jacqueline Pascarl of being a shrinking violet. The outspoken community activist, author, documentary filmmaker and media identity has dedicated her adult life to giving voice to and achieving rights for those who have been marginalised or whose lives are at risk.
In announcing her appointment, Chair of Project Rozana Australia, Ron Finkel AM, said Ms Pascarl is an experienced CEO in the NGO/NFP sector.
“We are thrilled that Jacqueline recognised the importance of Project Rozana’s mission to achieve healthcare parity for Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza. Her CV is inspiring and her experience will add immeasurably to the work that we do in Israel, Palestine and the affiliate countries that make up the Project Rozana family.”
Among her many accomplishments, Ms Pascarl conceived Operation Angel in 1997 to champion the needs of women and children in war and disaster zones.
She has lectured at the US State Department and DFAT on the Hague Convention and International Parental Child Abduction.
She is perhaps best known for her fearless work over 14 years to secure the rights to see her two eldest children who were victims of parental abduction. As a result of that experience, she has assisted in the repatriation of more than 390 abducted children globally.
