After the ISIS attacks on Sinjar and the Yezidi population in August 2014, Ms Ibrahim founded the Free Yezidi Foundation to help Yezidi civilians in need and raise awareness of the situation. On behalf of the Foundation, she has spoken at the United Nations Security Council, the British Parliament, and a number of prominent universities and think tanks. Pari has also been active in organising protests and speaking with the media, including Al-Monitor, the BBC, Al-Jazeera, and the Dutch news show Brandpunt. After the first fact-finding missions to meet with survivors, Ms Ibrahim understood that the Foundation would be most effective by providing services and assistance directly to survivors. She has spearheaded FYF efforts to establish women's and children's centers, leads the FYF justice project, and conducts general advocacy to promote greater humanitarian and human rights support to Yezidi civilians.
Ms Ibrahim is an advocate of heightened attention to and appreciation of gender issues in the Yezidi community, and seeks respect and acknowledgment of women’s rights in the broadest sense.
Ms Ibrahim studied law at the University of Amsterdam. She speaks Kurmanji, Dutch, English, and German.
Mevrouw Haddad-Sylvester heeft vanaf dichtbij de oprichting van de Free Yezidi Foundation meegemaakt. Het was voor haar dan ook geheel vanzelfsprekend dat zij zich na het afronden van haar postacademische beroepsopleiding zou inzetten voor de Free Yezidi Foundation. Als penningmeester hoopt mevrouw Haddad-Sylvester de verder groeiende Free Yezidi Foundation te kunnen begeleiden en ondersteunen.
