The Wider Image: Lives washed away: A mother's loss in Mozambique
Maria Jofresse, 25, and her mother Ester Thoma wash themselves in the water of the Muda River as Maria's father Joao Jofresse, who works on a water taxi, returns from the opposite shore, in the aftermath of Cyclone Idai, in the village Cheia, which means "Flood" in Portuguese, near Beira, Mozambique April 2, 2019. Maria Jofresse lost her two children to the storm. In the midst of the floods, she dug their small graves but can't find them anymore. "People suffered indeed but no one suffered as I did because I lost the most precious things I had - my kids," she said. REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra SEARCH "BENSEMRA FLOOD" FOR THIS STORY.
