A year ago the Azakhel Refugee Camp in western Pakistan was home to thousands of Afghan refugees. Many had lived there their entire lives and had build sturdy mud brick homes. But in August of 2010, the worst flash floods in living memory roared through the camp, washing the homes away. The IRC's Peter Biro documented the conditions with his camera immediately after the waters began to subside. Peter's colleague Ned Colt went back to Azakhel in the summer of 2011 to see what had changed.
