"Over 50 houses in our village have been damaged, and everyone's furniture has been flooded, some of the falls of the homes have fallen, others have cracks. The good thing is we haven't had any fatalities. We have emptied out most of the houses, and people are just standing on the road. We have no tents, no food and the rain isn't stopping."
— 40-year-old man surrounded by children in wet, dirty clothes in Lakki Marwat District, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa
"There is nothing left. There is nothing to eat, no place to live, it's just water, water. The people are helping each other. There isn't any aid from the government; there isn't any aid from anyone else. A few helicopters came; they gave us a few things to eat, but not enough for an entire household. They brought their cameras and took photos so they could show the world they are giving aid. But there is no aid. Everyone is just surviving on the clothes on their backs. There is nothing left here."
"There are thousands of people here, too many to count. Everyone is poor and destitute. There are little, tiny children who are starving here. There are women here, too. We only have God to help us. Where can we go? There are no relatives who can take us. Wherever you go, anyone who had a house, money, furniture, everything has been destroyed. These people have no support."
— Hassan, flood victim at an aid camp in Nowshera
