The Wider Image: Last handful of fish: Crisis pushes more Sri Lankans into poverty
Retired soldier Saman Priyantha, 51, poses with his prosthetic leg, amid the country's economic crisis, in Colombo, Sri Lanka, August 7, 2022. "I joined the Sri Lanka Army in 1989, and in 1992 I lost my leg to a land mine," he said. "I am receiving a pension of Rs 40,000 to 45,000, but that is not enough to sustain my family of five."
