In this Sept. 28, 2012 photo, Darlene Derosier, 43, a Muslim, posts a how-to sign on the Islamic tradition of washing parts of the body in preparation for prayer at the Al-Fattah Mosque in Gressier, Haiti. Islam has won a growing number of followers in this impoverished country, especially after the catastrophic earthquake in 2010 that killed hundreds of thousands and left millions more homeless. Derosier said she was drawn to the religion's preaching of self-discipline, emphasis on education and attention to cleanliness. The constant washing, she said, helps her and other Muslims avoid cholera, the waterborne illness that health officials say has sickened hundreds of thousands and killed thousands since surfacing after the quake.
