Al-Nakeel is one of the small villages in Habil Jabr destrict, Lahj governorate. The residents of this village suffer from a high prevalence of cholera. Its remote geographical location and the lack of health centers there were one of the main reasons for the suffering of the people of this village, which calls for urgent interventions to support the families in this village.

The family's only source of income is the father’s pension. He often goes to work to help his family. Fadhel is one of the community volunteers who participated in the awareness sessions in his area. He expressed that: “The area suffers from the spread of cholera because the lack of awareness of the villagers about how to prevent this disease". He added: “Unfortunately, our area lacks a specialized medical center in cholera, which makes us afraid”. When asked Fadhel about his opinion on the intervention, he replied: "In the past, the number of cholera patients has been increasing.
