Gorkha (Gurkha) District, Nepal

Says (15, right) stands in front of a makeshift house where her auntie, Parvati (35), prepares tea. The family built this shelter on the remains of their old house a few days after 25 April 2015 earthquake hit Saurpani-4 village. Being so close to the epicentre and lodged on a steep hillside, the village was extremely hard hit. Less than 10 of about 1000 houses remain standing, although none of them are habitable and 42 people were killed and 22 injured. The 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck central Nepal (Gorkha District was the epicentre), causing widespread destruction of property and infrastructure and killing approximately 8,000 people and injuring more than 18,000. Many buildings on the UNESCO World Heritage list were also damaged or destroyed. A second earthquake, considered an aftershock, struck on 13 May 2015, causing further loss of life and property.
