Pakistan flood victims need dignity as much as aid

The man stood so close to  me that I could feel the heat of his face. Each word he spit out rapid fire, his thoughts disjointed by rage. Every word follows the first so quickly I have trouble understanding him. That he was angry, though, was clear.

“We are not animals, this is not feeding time at the zoo. We are humans, yet the police beat us, they throw food at us. We are not animals,” he said.
