Al-Sharaf has made a career of livestock vaccination for more than 15 years, enabling her to support her family. She said that she has been able to vaccinate about a thousand sheep in a single day, and has therefore become one of the most desirable people for livestock breeders in Mafraq Governorate, due to her speed and efficiency, according to Petra.

Head of the agriculture directorate in Mafraq, Imad AlAyasrah, honored Al-sharaf and her achievement on Monday, during a ceremony marking Jordan’s centenary, Petra reported.

Al-Sharaf called on Mafraq’s women to enrol in courses on vaccinating livestock, as a good means of securing stable income.
