Ajab Muhammad Miftah, 54, poses for a portrait in her house in the village of Ezbat Soliman, Fayoum, Egypt, on September 22, 2022. The hands supporting her belong to her daughters, who have been supporting her since she lost her husband and two of her young sons in a microbus accident during their trip to Aswan. In order to make a living, fishermen make the trip from the Fayoum governorate to Lake Nasser in the Aswan governorate, which is more than 825 km from Fayoum. It became a trip of death after they had to abandon Lake Qarun, where they used to fish, due to the pollution in the area.
