Miriam Araujo, 25, caresses Lucas, her 4-months old child born with microcephaly as he sleeps on a hammock inside their house, in Sao Jose dos Cordeiros. The physiotherapy is vital for the five-month-old infant, born with an abnormally small head, brain damage and motor control issues. Doctors believe that Lucas - like hundreds of other children - developed microcephaly due to the Zika virus his mother contracted when she was pregnant.

Mariam Araujo, 25, reacts as she holds Lucas, her 4-months old child and born with microcephaly as they get inside a van in Sao Jose dos Cordeiros as they start a trip to Campina Grande, Brazil. A wiry 25-year-old with sharp eyes, Araujo makes the arduous 175-mile round-trip up to three times a week to the clinic in Campina Grande, the second city of Paraiba, one of Brazil's poorest states.

Miriam Araujo, 25, holds Lucas, her 4-months old child born with microcephaly as her mother Joana, 51, observes and her daughter Maisa, 6, looks on, as the stand outside their house, in Sao Jose dos Cordeiros, Brazil. Hard-hit by three years of drought that wrecked corn crops, her family's only means of transport is an old motorbike. Authorities in Sao Jose dos Cordeiros send a battered Fiat to take her the 9 km of rough dirt track into town, where she catches a minibus for the distant clinic.

Mariam Araujo, 25, plays with Lucas, her 4-months old second child and born with microcephaly as they wait for a physiotherapy session in Pedro I hospital in Campina Grande. Her family's plight shows how unprepared Brazil's creaking public health service was for Zika when the mosquito-borne virus struck last year.

Miriam Araujo, 25, holds Lucas, her 4-months old child born with microcephaly at their house, in Sao Jose dos Cordeiros. "I wish I could go more often," Araujo says as insects swarm a bare bulb hanging from a beam of the one-storey home. "I'm afraid they'll stop sending the car. Then what will we do?"
