My participation in teaching, training, and volunteer work in the medical field, and my vision of how my students grow and change through education with love and passion made me believe that we can make a noticed change in the medical field in our beautiful Palestine, through creativity in training.
Thanks to the efforts of Dr Jeanne Frossard, Dr Khaled Dawas, we were trained to become trainers in trauma care, and since that time 2014 we have been training weekly. I have trained with our wonderful team 150 training sessions and I have trained 20 trainers in trauma care when Ms. Jeanne came to Palestine in 2016 and 2017. I am still training voluntarily. Because I believe that we in Palestine need this kind of training because of the daily violence due to the occupation. I believe that we resist the occupation through education.
