Gleyse Kelly da Silva, 28, holds her two-year-old daughter Maria Giovanna, at their house in Recife, Brazil, August 8, 2018. Gleyse has help from her husband and mother in caring for Maria Giovanna "Gigi" da Silva. But the burden is still great, and she was forced to leave her job as a toll attendant. "She does not sit alone, she does not roll, she does not do anything alone," Gleyse said. Gigi needs an orthopedist, but there are not enough to go around, and she's perpetually on waiting lists. Gleyse struggles with navigating her daughter's wheelchair on public transportation. Few buses have working lifts, and some drivers have refused to help her. Such struggles prompted Gleyse to help create the Union of Mothers of Angels, which provides advice and logistical support for mothers of children with microcephaly. The group now serves more than 250 families in Pernambuco. REUTERS/Ueslei Marcelino SEARCH "ZIKA" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

"It's hard to manage the girls. Some of them are jealous, but Luana needs more care. In time, they'll understand." Rosana does not have any family support and is overwhelmed by the cost of housing and Luana's medicines. She counts it a victory that she has managed to get a wheelchair for Luana, and worries about the four surgeries her daughter needs to correct problems with her eyes, her gut and the position of her hips and feet. The demands have taken Rosana to some dark places, and she confesses that she has considered suicide. But she still dreams of a better future, and hopes to get a degree in accounting or civil engineering. REUTERS/Ueslei Marcelino SEARCH "ZIKA" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

A few years ago Jackeline fought to overcome a very rare complication from an earlier pregnancy, and then survived cancer. "My dream was to be a mother again," she says. In 2015, she got her wish. But during her pregnancy, she learned that her son had microcephaly. "When he was born, I fell in love with him because I knew he would be a good thing in my life, even with the difficulties I would have to face." Daniel's father separated from Jackeline shortly after learning that his son had microcephaly. He pays a small amount of family support every month, in addition to a monthly check that Jackeline gets from the government. REUTERS/Ueslei Marcelino SEARCH "ZIKA" FOR THIS STORY.

The Wider Image: Mothers of babies afflicted by Zika fight poverty, despair 
Gleyse Kelly da Silva, 28, rests on the baby carriage of her two-year-old daughter Maria Giovanna, while waiting for a medical appointment in a hospital in Recife, Brazil, August 8, 2018. Gleyse has help from her husband and mother in caring for Maria Giovanna "Gigi" da Silva. But the burden is still great, and she was forced to leave her job as a toll attendant. "She does not sit alone, she does not roll, she does not do anything alone," Gleyse said. Gigi needs an orthopedist, but there are not enough to go around, and she's perpetually on waiting lists. Gleyse struggles with navigating her daughter's wheelchair on public transportation. Few buses have working lifts, and some drivers have refused to help her. "People do not respect my daughter's rights," she said. Other mothers have told her similar stories, including a bus passenger who refused to ride with "that demon," referring to a baby with microcephaly.

The Wider Image: Mothers of babies afflicted by Zika fight poverty, despair 
Rosana Vieira Alves, 28, smiles with her daughter two-year-old Luana Vieira, who was born with microcephaly, during an evaluation session with a physiotherapist at the Altino Ventura rehabilitation center in Recife, Brazil, August 6, 2018. Rosana has three daughters. "It's hard to manage the girls. Some of them are jealous, but Luana needs more care. In time, they'll understand." Rosana does not have any family support and is overwhelmed by the cost of housing and Luana's medicines. She counts it a victory that she has managed to get a wheelchair for Luana, and worries about the four surgeries her daughter needs to correct problems with her eyes, her gut and the position of her hips and feet. The demands have taken Rosana to some dark places, and she confesses that she has considered suicide. But she still dreams of a better future, and hopes to get a degree in accounting or civil engineering. REUTERS/Ueslei Marcelino SEARCH "ZIKA" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

The Wider Image: Mothers of babies afflicted by Zika fight poverty, despair 
Nearly three years after a Zika outbreak in Brazil caused thousands of cases of microcephaly and other devastating birth defects in newborns, Reuters returned to check on the mothers and their children. Zika, the first mosquito-borne virus known to damage developing foetuses, has since disappeared from headlines, but world health officials fear its spread to new populations. In northeastern Brazil, we spoke with nearly 30 mothers who contracted the Zika virus during pregnancy. Most of them have been abandoned by their husbands and must care for their children alone. Many of the women have largely adjusted to the initial shock of their child's disability, trading dreams of their own careers for the reality of around-the-clock care of a child who may never walk or talk. Many struggle to get by on a monthly disability check of just over 954 reais (roughly $250), which must cover shelter, food, medications and transportation to frequent doctor visits. Many confessed to despair and depression, and some considered suicide. But they share a fierce love for their children and a hope for a better life. Four of them provided us a glimpse of their daily life in simple homes on the outskirts of Recife and Olinda, two cities in the state of Pernambuco.
