A relative of the deceased mourns in front of the coffin of Chantal Montas, who died at the age of 42, at the Defender of the Christian Faith church in Belladere, Haiti, April 10, 2021. Haitians dress the corpses of their loved ones for funerals with an ease that perhaps reflects their familiarity with death. Disease, malnutrition and natural disasters are rife in the Caribbean country, while healthcare is poor, leading to the highest infant and maternal mortality rates in the Western Hemisphere. The average life expectancy is just 64 years old. REUTERS/Valerie Baeriswyl SEARCH "HAITI FUNERALS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES

Pastor Samson, prophet of the Defender of the Christian Faith church, reads a last prayer in Belladere Cemetery, Haiti, April 10, 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.
