The Wider Image: Last handful of fish: Crisis pushes more Sri Lankans into poverty
The only rice that the family of Velu C. M. Sivakanthi, 47, currently has is left on a table at her home at Wanathamulla, Colombo, Sri Lanka, August 2, 2022. "We live here with two daughters, a son and a grandchild. My husband left me after I got injured in a cooking gas explosion. Since I don't have a job I have no other option but to work in a bungalow where I get Rs 1,500 a day, if I have work. But that is not at all enough to manage our family of four. We have rice only for two days," said Sivakanthi. REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon SEARCH "KIM COLOMBO ECONOMY" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
