This mother was carrying her daughter to get rice from the United Nations. She has a broken hip and leg, but even five weeks after the earthquake, food is scarce in some parts of Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
This was a peaceful protest of approximately 500 people carrying brooms. They marched through the streets of Port-au-Prince, demanding that the Haitian government "sweep away" the corruption that has plagued the leaders here for generations. They stopped at the temporary office of President Rene Preval, under the watchful eyes of United Nations soldiers.
The most vulnerable population here is the very old and very young, and they often aren't able to take advantage of the food and water distribution. This woman helps her neighbor get some water from Yele Haiti, the charity founded by the Haitian singer Wyclef Jean.
