The Wider Image: Mothers of babies afflicted by Zika fight poverty, despair 
Maria Giovanna "Gigi" da Silva, who is two years old, and was born with microcephaly, sits in her home in Recife, Brazil, August 8, 2018. Gigi needs an orthopedist, but there are not enough to go around, and she's perpetually on waiting lists. Her mother Gleyse Kelly da Silva struggles with navigating her daughter's wheelchair on public transportation. Few buses have working lifts, and some drivers have refused to help her. "People do not respect my daughter's rights," she said. Other mothers have told her similar stories, including a bus passenger who refused to ride with "that demon," referring to a baby with microcephaly. REUTERS/Ueslei Marcelino SEARCH "ZIKA" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
