A man fires bullets into the air as a sign of respect for the social standing of the deceased, Joseph Anselme Benoit, in Casale, Haiti, March 27, 2021. Despite the country's poverty, funerals are often extravagant social events in Haiti, complete with a festive wake and fanfare bands. Haiti's death rites are viewed as important to guarantee a safe passage to the afterworld ? with cremations and organ donations rare because the deceased are deemed still to need their bodies - but also a way to mark one's social standing.

Yolvida Desruisseaux irons the outfit she will wear to funeral of her godfather's father in Casale, Haiti, March 27, 2021. Desruisseaux said the tradition of turning a funeral into a multi-day social event was a balm to the soul of mourning families. "The family is sad but it's good to have this kind of ambience so we can smile a bit," she said. "The guests sometimes help us with tasks in the house and chat with us to help us get through the worst." REUTERS/Valerie Baeriswyl SEARCH "HAITI FUNERALS" FOR THIS STORY.
