Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Pamela De Araujo, 23, with her eight-week-old daughter, Catarina Gomes, who was born with microcephaly, at her home in the Rio de Janeiro's West Zone neighbourhood of Realengo. Pamela was sick with Zika during her first trimester, however her baby tested negative for the virus. She was really worried after seeing the news about the zika virus. When Catarina was born she thought she did something wrong while pregnant. Her husband works during the day. Pamela travels 1.5-2 hours one way to see a pediatrician because access to health care in the West Zone is very limited.
'I've always been against abortion', says Pamela, who is an Evangelical Christian. She says, if you are willing to give care and support, children with microcephaly can have a life as normal as possible.
