Dicing with Death: Haiti, Hell in Paradise

Haiti is the poorest country in the Caribbean. 5 years after the earthquake which hit Port-au-Prince and the surrounding areas, the effects of the catastrophe are still being felt. To cross the country, there are only dirt tracks to transport people and their goods. Travelling the 80km that separates Gonaïves and Môle Saint Nicolas in the North-east takes up to ten hours. There is one bus which makes the journey, and it is far from a comfortable ride.

Môle Saint Nicolas is where the country’s gold mines are found and where some Haitians put their lives at stake to find gold to sell. Children as young as 10 years old can be found helping out after school.
