About the Photograph:
“This photo was taken in a flood relief camp run by the Pakistan Army for flood affected victims from Pakistan’s biggest flood in the country’s history, in August 2010. I had been covering the floods for a few weeks now and came across a large size camp near on the outskirts of Muzaffargarh in Punjab, Pakistan. The children in these photos were the lucky ones, whose families has been accepted into the relief camp. Millions of people had been displaced by the flooding and over 20 million affected. I had seen so many others on the sides of roads begging for food and waiting for handouts from passing motorists. These children had been waiting over two hours in a queues, waiting with their empty pots, waiting to get a few spoon-fulls of soup for their dinner.”
