The Wider Image: Last handful of fish: Crisis pushes more Sri Lankans into poverty
Road sweeper W. M. Irangani, 58, poses in front of a Buddhist altar at her house, amid the country's economic crisis, in Colombo, Sri Lanka, August 4, 2022. "Our water and electricity supplies were disconnected during the COVID-19 crisis but still we had food. But this far, far worse," she said. "I am scared to borrow as I have no way of repaying. Already I am in huge debt. I only pray that this economic crisis improves for all and we have enough food to eat." REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon SEARCH "KIM COLOMBO ECONOMY" FOR THIS STORY.
