funeral




A member of a funeral band plays the trumpet during a funeral procession in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Thursday, March 15, 2007. Burdened by rising funeral costs, many Haitian families can no longer afford to bury loved ones, leaving the country's morgues piled with unclaimed corpses. A basic funeral in Haiti starts at around 20,000 gourdes, US$540; E405, about double what it cost five years ago. That's nearly a third of what most Haitians earn in a year. Cremation is an option available only for wealthy Haitians
