Mother of two Amsale Hailemariam, a domestic worker who lost work because of the coronavirus, hangs clothes after washing them outside her small tent in the capital Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Friday, June 26, 2020. The virus arrived, and dreams faded for families, and entire countries. The world could see its first increase in extreme poverty in 22 years, further sharpening social inequities.
