Anderson Laroche, 17, makes an emotional farewell speech to his deceased mother, Germanie Pierre in front of his family in Gonaives, Haiti, June 12, 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.
