“I work for an ICRC mental health program in Gaza that focuses on amputees”, starts Ghada.
She adds; “Humanitarian work has set me free from the politics of the ongoing conflict. I help everyone who needs me, regardless of his or her religion, culture, or nationality or beliefs.
Seeing so much misery has also changed my priorities in life. I no longer exist only for my family and myself. I have a far bigger role to play, which is helping others.
My husband and children are very supportive and proud of what I do. My daughter is studying medicine and dreams of being a humanitarian worker someday too.
I am happy and proud to be a woman. Women should stop seeing themselves as victims of traditions or society. They should stand up and believe in their strengths and capabilities. They should be #boldforchange”.
