The Wider Image: Venezuelan mothers, children in tow, rush to migrate
Venezuelan migrant Teresa Amaro, 83, from Barquisimeto, poses for a picture with her daughter Maite Perez, 43, and her grandson Edwar Coste, 7, while they rest at the Ecuadorian-Peruvian border service centre before they continue their journey into Peru, on the outskirts of Tumbes, Peru, June 15, 2019. Amaro, who had previously suffered a heart attack, said: "It is tough to find medicines, and when you find them they are very expensive, and there is not enough money to buy them. We didn't have electricity. We didn't have cooking gas and we were cooking with firewood. By the time we left, we already had a month without gas in the whole area, and we couldn't find firewood either. I did not want to come, but they told me: 'Mama, we're not going to leave you alone.'"
