Erika and Macarena

Erika and Macarena

Erika, right, and her twin sister Macarena, who suffer from chronic respiratory illness, stand inside their home in Avia Terai, in Chaco province, Argentina on March 31. The twins’ mother, Claudia Sariski, whose home has no running water, says she doesn’t let her children drink from the discarded pesticide containers she keeps in her dusty backyard. But her chickens do, and she has no other water to wash the family’s clothes with. (Natacha Pisarenko/Associated Press)
