Spanish stroke survivor Pilar Redondo works on her recovery 
Pilar Redondo Arribas, 55, spends her time looking through the window of her home in Navalcarnero, Spain, October 27, 2022. Redondo suffered a stroke last year which caused her to spend two weeks at a hospital intensive care unit. The stroke caused paralysis and spasticity in the right side of her body as well as aphasia, which affects her ability to communicate verbally. She does daily rehabilitation sessions to help improve her quality of life. "It's a difficult situation for the whole family. As a daughter, I've had to take on responsibilities before my time, I've had to mature. But when I see how hard she works and how she manages to stand on her feet during therapy, it gives me hope. My mother is very strong-willed" says Redondo's 17-year-old daughter Raquel. According to World Stroke Organisation, 1 out of 4 people over 25 will have a stroke in their lifetime. World Stroke Day is observed on October 29 to raise awareness about the high rates, the risk factors, and the signs of stroke to better prevent and support survivors. REUTERS/Susana Vera

The home pool of long COVID sufferer 43-year-old ICU nurse Maria Eugenia Diez, is seen photographed through blue plastic, in Chiloeches, Spain, March 9, 2021. The photograph was taken through blue plastic to visualise the effects of long COVID. Year-long symptoms have made Diez give up exercise and forego medical congresses where she has trouble concentrating. "The first time I tried to take a swim in my pool, thinking that the water would help me improve my symptoms, it was very distressing. I started feeling out of breath the more I was submerging in the water. I had to sit on the steps and let the water surround me no higher than my waist to regain my breath," she said. Diez sometimes feels like a rookie at work despite her 20-year experience and has invented routines to remember tasks she used to perform automatically. She feels she has lost part of her identity, but she tries to stay positive. "I'm adapting to what I have, I will enjoy what I have now and I can't keep thinking about what I had before. It's hard because I miss it a lot." REUTERS/Susana Vera SEARCH "SPAIN LONGCOVID" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES

Jackline Bosibori, 17, a secondary school student, poses for a photograph within Lindi village of Kibera slums, in Nairobi, Kenya, December 16, 2020. For Bosibori, who gave birth in November, school closures defined 2020. Many Kenyan advocacy groups fear adolescent pregnancies increased as girls were forced to stay home while parents still went to work. "If I was in school, I could have not been pregnant," she said. For Bosibori, school closures have made her dream of becoming a lawyer seem far away. "I feel I have not progressed in any way this year," laments Bosibori. "If I was in school, I could have improved in my goals." The situation makes her anxious, she said from the one-room home where she lives with six other family members. Kenyan schools have been shut since March. Bosibori wants to return when they reopen in January, but she worries about the fees. "My mom lost her job ... at this time, we don't have rent," she said. "I am stressed." "2020 was a bad year to me and it was a good year to me," Bosibori said. "It was a bad year to me because I got pregnant unexpectedly." "But it was a good year to me because I delivered my baby and she is OK." REUTERS/Monicah Mwangi SEARCH "GEN-Z COVID-19" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES

Valeria Murguia, 21, a university student, poses for a photograph in a field near her home in McFarland, California, U.S., December 17, 2020. Murguia was finishing her junior year at California State University, Fresno, studying communications and working part time at the campus health centre when the pandemic hit. All of a sudden, classes went online and her modest income from crafting social media messages to help students stay healthy evaporated. Living in Fresno, a fast-growing city where housing costs were rising, became too expensive, so within a few weeks Murguia found herself back home with her parents in the small farming town of McFarland. At home, Murguia concentrated on schoolwork, and on skills she would need after graduation: she learned how to build websites, improved her graphic design proficiency and studied event planning. She also worked with her parents, both immigrants from Mexico, picking grapes in California's Central Valley vineyards. "It made people more serious," she said of the pandemic, "not so loosey-goosey ... It's going to for sure leave a mark on our generation." Murguia will graduate in May into a tight job market. Even so, Murguia is optimistic about her post-pandemic future. "I'm really staying positive, because if I start looking at the negative things, I just start playing games in my head," she said. "And I don't want to end in that space." REUTERS/Brandon Bell SEARCH "GEN-Z COVID-19" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES

ÒWar is devastating and the situation is deteriorating, and there is no improvement on the level of the currency and the rial is deteriorating day by day. The living situation is very difficult and many people do not receive their salaries. Some employees are paid for a month, and later go three months without any payment. The situation is very bad and the people suffer. There are people who have been displaced from their homes because of the conflict in their areas. I hope that the war will end so that life will come back and Yemeni blood shedding will stop. Yemen has become a battleground in a proxy war between regional states,Ó he said. REUTERS/Fawaz Salman

The Wider Image: Brazilians toil for gold in illegal Amazon mines 
Informal mining in Brazil is seen by many as a scourge polluting the Amazon rainforest, poisoning indigenous tribes and robbing the nation of its wealth. For others it is a way of life. Brazilian garimpos, or wildcat mines, are operated by small crews of men, often caked in red-brown mud and working with rudimentary pans, shovels and sluice boxes that have been used for centuries. More sophisticated operations use water cannons and boats sucking mud from the bottoms of rivers. Regardless of the method, searching for gold and other minerals like cassiterite and niobium is dirty, dangerous and often illegal. "Looking for gold is like playing in a casino," said a 48-year-old miner. Miners asked not to be named, saying they feared the police as much of their work is illegal. Garimpos are in the spotlight as Brazil debates opening an area known as Renca in the northern Amazon forest to mining, which has met with stiff resistance from environmentalists. Mines and Energy Minister Fernando Coelho Filho argues that licensed mining will be an improvement over the estimated 1,000 people currently mining in the reserve illegally. Crepurizao lies hundreds of miles south of Renca, but gives a window into life in the garimpos caught up in the debate. Living in makeshift homes of wood and plastic, miners in the area ship some 60 kilograms of gold per month, according to traders. That much pure gold is worth millions of dollars on the global market, but high costs and layers of traders in the local market leave most miners living on the brink of poverty.
