The Wider Image: Malnourished Venezuelans hope urgently needed aid arrives soon
Yeibe Medina, the one-year old son of Maria Guitia sits on the floor feeding himself at their home near San Francisco de Yare, Venezuela, February 18, 2019. The pair live with Guitia's five siblings and parents in a one-room tin shed with a dirt floor and no running water. Work is scarce and they live off payments for odd jobs and a monthly government handout of heavily-subsidised basic food supplies. They have taken to inventing meals with what little they have like lentils with plantain from the trees in their backyard. Guitia said her son had lost weight over the past five months until Caritas gave them some nutritional supplements. REUTERS/Carlos Garcia Rawlins SEARCH "RAWLINS GUZMAN" FOR THIS STORY.
