Safiya Al Balbissi walks assertively, like a queen. With great self-confidence and talent, she drives a Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) ambulance through the streets and alleys of Tulkarem Governorate. She has become a familiar sight for many Palestinians, although some people continue to raise astonished eyebrows when they see her behind the wheel.
Finding herself a single mom, Sisa Abu Daooh, a woman "strong as ten men," began living as a man to provide for her daughter. She's continued to do so for forty years, and just won an award for "best mom."
