AN INTERNATIONAL FORCE FOR GOOD
Dr Raed Mansour with Palestinian Foreign Minister Dr Riad Malki
Based in Israel, Dr Mansour played a pivotal role in the transfer of critically-needed ventilators and associated equipment to Ramallah. He is held in high regard by both communities, by representing the values that have made Project Rozana a force for good in the Middle East.
Described as an honest broker and a man of integrity, Dr Raed Mansour has accepted the position of Regional Director for Project Rozana International.
Fluent in Arabic, Hebrew and English, Dr Mansour graduated in medicine from the Haifa Technion. He has also built a successful career in business, with a particular focus on social welfare and medical support.
Dr Mansour is well-known among the political and bureaucratic elite in Israel and Palestine. It was these relationships which were significant in the smooth delivery of the ventilators, at a time when the Palestinian health system was coming under increased pressure.
Ron Finkel AM, Chair of Project Rozana International, said two key milestones contributed to the need for a regional director,
“As a result of the ventilator project, our relationship with the Palestinian Authority has grown significantly. It has positioned us in a way that allows us to deliver our suite of services in the most effective and time-efficient way possible. But it requires close management which we are sure Raed Mansour can provide.
With the impending introduction of the UK into the Project Rozana family, we need someone who knows the landscape and has the ear of the key players. Again, Raed is that person and up for the task.”
Mr Finkel said that Dr Mansour will engage with the UAE, Jordan, Bahrain and Egypt, which are regarded as fertile ground for the development of Project Rozana’s mission throughout the Middle East.
