Lesbia Avila de Molina, 53, a kidney disease patient, cries due to pain in her house during a blackout in Maracaibo, Venezuela, April 12, 2019. Avila said she woke up feeling ill one recent morning after receiving just one hour and 40 minutes of treatment the prior day due to lack of power and equipment shortages at her Maracaibo clinic. She said she feels like she is choking when she does not receive full treatment. "I just ask God that if I die, it will not be of choking," said Avila.
