The Wider Image: Malnutrition curses the children of Venezuela
Johanna Mendoza, 36, holds her 18-month-old daughter Johanny, who is recovering from malnutrition, while waiting to be checked at the non-profit organization Mapani in Barquisimeto, Venezuela, August 7, 2019. "The doctor told me that my girl was malnourished, and she also had a serious bacterial infection, that if she didn't receive treatment in time, she could die," Mendoza said. She also mentioned that they visited a public hospital several times and Johanny was never correctly diagnosed, "They only checked her and said she had a bacteria in her mouth." Mapani is a nutrition-focused non-profit organisation. REUTERS/Carlos Garcia Rawlins SEARCH "VENEZUELA MALNUTRITION" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
