They are encouraging others to help the United Nations collect nearly €75m for aid to an estimated 800,000 people affected by four devastating tropical storms and hurricanes.

Today, Damon and Jean travelled to the western coastal town of Cabaret to distribute food to an estimated 600 people sheltered in a school.

Tomorrow, they expect to travel to the flooded village of Gonaives.

The storms have killed at least 331 people in Haiti since mid-August.
