Oxfam ran special 'cash-for-work' programs to help those whose livelihoods were washed away by last year's devastating floods get back on their feet. Such programs provide people with a much-needed income by paying them to help clean up flood-affected areas and rehabilitate facilities.

Ali Hassan was one participant in the program. In this time-lapse film he collects a check for some of the work he's done, and drives his motorbike to the local town to cash it.
