Venezuela dialysis patients face uncertain fate after power cuts
Missing dialysis treatment, which removes toxins that build up in the blood of people who suffer kidney failure, leaves patients feeling dizzy and nauseous. Chronic kidney patients can die if going too long without treatment.

Maracaibo, Venezuela
Seconds before William Lopez, 45, was set to be connected to a dialysis machine at a state-run clinic in the western Venezuelan city of Maracaibo in April, the power went out. Pictured, Lopez waits for the electricity to return at a dialysis center during a blackout in Maracaibo, Venezuela, April 11. "The impotence that I feel makes me want to cry," said Lopez "Some people go to sleep while they are in treatment. I do not, because I am scared I will never wake up."
