In this video (Hebrew audio: English subtitles) Ibtisam speaks to her experience of fleeing domestic violence, and ultimately, attaining safety for herself and her 4 children, and finding work that allows her to be self-supporting. She speaks to the urgent importance of increasing resources available for Arab women in Israel, as currently, these resources are underfunded and unable to provide for the number of women that seek services. Such centers need to be tailored for the Arab population, respectful of Arab culture, and most of all, appropriately funded. Video provided by Abraham Initiatives
