how we helped Manal* and Fatima*

Manal (18) and her sister Fatima (12) with Dr Ma'ab from the Emergency Health Unit, after they received their cholera vaccination at a Save the Children-supported site in Sudan.

Manal, 18, and her sister Fatima, 12, live in Sennar state, Sudan. Manal finished school in February 2019 and now helps her family at home with cooking and cleaning. Fatima is still in school and wants to be a teacher to educate others in the future.

Manal and Fatima came to a Save the Children-supported vaccination site to be vaccinated against cholera after hearing the community announcement about the campaign. They wanted to be protected from the disease, especially if another outbreak occurs in the future.

"We came here today [to get vaccinated] to protect ourselves from cholera. If cholera comes again we’ll be ready for it." - Manal, 18, Sudan
