In pictures: Getting food to Miskito Indians

Nicaragua's indigenous Miskito people live along the banks of the River Coco and are known as the "children of the river". These neglected communities recently suffered an invasion of rats, which razed crops and invaded shacks, ruining clothes and everything else in their way. Many people were left without food.

The remoteness and lack of proper roads meant that it was months before food aid could reach them.
