Tragedy of the spirit in Nepal Earthquake

Khaled Hasan | Nepal

Approximately 8,000 people have been killed and more than twice as many injured during the 7.9 Richter scale earthquake in Nepal, which occurred at 11:56 NST on 25th April, 2015. It was the most powerful disaster to strike Nepal since the 1934 Nepal–Bihar earthquake.

Around 500,000 have lost their homes or belongings. Countless others were forced from damaged homes, fearing the risk of rain causing a collapse if there was an aftershock. The area remains at risk of landslides and the loss of historic buildings is immeasurable.

Looking at the aerial view of Nepal, it appears like a war zone.

People are still frightened and insecure. They are sleeping in tents or other temporary shelters outside of their homes. They don’t know what will happen next or if the government will come to help them.
