Description : ICRC website, "Inspiring women working to improve people’s lives", 07 March 2017

“Within the frame of my work as a humanitarian, I meet people who live under very difficult circumstances. Being a woman allows me to approach the most vulnerable. They seem to open up to me easier. In doing so, I am better able to identify and support their humanitarian needs.
The people in my community know me as the “Red Cross woman”. In a conservative society like Hebron, a woman leading a humanitarian response is a bold gesture for a change. It clearly demonstrates that women can do the same work as men, connect with communities and attend to their needs”.
