The Wider Image: Venezuela dialysis patients face uncertain fate after power cuts
The hands of Aidalis Guanipa, 25, a kidney disease patient, and her 83-year-old grandmother, are seen as they pose for a photo, while they wait for the electricity to return, at her house during a blackout, in La Concepcion, Venezuela, April 12, 2019. "I should have been born rich to be able to buy myself a new kidney," said Guanipa. They get by on her grandmother's pension and from sales of homemade sweets. "I have not had dialysis for two days because there has been no electricity. I am scared." REUTERS/Ueslei Marcelino SEARCH "MARCELINO KIDNEY" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
