Palestine Red Crescent applauds first woman ambulance driver:

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.

“It is very easy to become an EMT. All you need is perseverance, a strong will and a bit of defiance. It’s that simple”.

Strong will indeed.
