A two-room, dirt floor house with only two double beds is home to Garry and Gaelle Pavilus and their eight children in Haiti. Garry makes some money by fishing, but he does not have steady work.

The family receives a food parcel from CAM every month. But with such a large family, the contents last only several days.

Haiti has the highest poverty level in the Western Hemisphere.
