“I pray to God that I can help others,” says Sanaa Mahameed, a Muslim-Israeli EMT and ambulance driver for United Hatzalah, a volunteer emergency medical services organization based in Jerusalem.

Sanaa Mahameed has spent the better part of her adult life dedicating her time to responding to medical emergencies. She is trained to drive an ambulance and works with the local ambulance organization known as Kahol-Lavan (Blue and white). She works at the local health clinic in her town and volunteers as a first responder with United Hatzalah of Israel.

It was a tragedy in the family that inspired Mahameed to volunteer and save lives.
