(The World Post) – When Ahmed Algohbary’s little brother Hamzah woke up on Saturday in Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, with severe diarrhea and unbearable abdominal pain, he knew the 9-year-old didn’t just catch a stomach bug. Algohbary rushed his sibling to the Sabeen hospital, a facility in the war-torn country backed by the international relief organization Save The Children. Soon his fear was confirmed. Hamzah was diagnosed with cholera, and so were many of the other patients in the overcrowded emergency ward. With every hospital bed taken, Algohbary took his brother in his lap, holding the IV tube while on the floor.
