The Wider Image: Venezuelan mothers, children in tow, rush to migrate
Venezuelan migrant Crisyesmil Rosales, 23, poses for a picture with her children Andres, 6, Aranza, 2, Sara, 20 months, her sister Angeli, 8, and her brother Abraham, 6, while they wait to process their documents at the Ecuadorian-Peruvian border service center, before continuing their journey to Arequipa, on the outskirts of Tumbes, Peru, June 16, 2019. Rosales is travelling with her siblings, her children and an aunt. She said that after eight days travelling, the toughest thing of her journey has been to sleep with the children on the street. "My mother is in Peru and as we thought they were going to close the border, she decided to send us money to travel," she said. "My mom was desperate there in Venezuela because if you are able to eat, you can't dress, and if you dress, you don't eat. That is something hard." "I want to give the best to the children, that is the most important. I want to work and a have good job to move forward." REUTERS/Carlos Garcia Rawlins SEARCH "MOTHERS REFUGEE" FOR THIS STORY.
