There Are no Scraps of Men – Alberto Cairo at TED (2011)

TED videos are inspiring, enlightening, educational at the least, but this one will touch you. Everyone deserves dignified treatment and no matter what you think, everyone is valuable.

Alberto Cairo's clinics in Afghanistan used to close down during active fighting. Now, they stay open. At TEDxRC2 (the RC stands for Red Cross/Red Crescent), Cairo tells the powerful story of why -- and how he found humanity and dignity in the midst of war.

There Are no Scraps of Men.
