In pictures: Fighting hunger in Haiti
Introduction

Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the Western hemisphere - more than half its inhabitants survive on less than $1 per day.

Every year, an estimated 38,000 children under the age of five die - almost one out of three because of malnutrition.

The situation is particularly serious in the remote village of Chauffard, high in the mountains above the capital, Port-au-Prince.
