Hamda and her sister Mariam are the subjects of one of a series of 14, three-minute Hakawi profiles – short films celebrating pockets of Arab society – produced and broadcast by Quest Arabiya.
The 24-hour, free-to-air Arabic factual entertainment channel was launched in December and is a partnership between Image Nation and Discovery Networks International. The full three-minute episodes can be seen every other day at 9.25pm and 11.20pm, and 60 and 90-second versions are screened round-the-clock.
