Nepal Earthquakes: One Year Later, Moving On

Aug 07, 2018

Twelve months ago, the earth beneath Nepal shook violently – so violently that it tore through the lives of millions of people living in the central and eastern parts of the country. The earthquakes in April and May 2015 took the lives of nearly 9,000 people, a third of whom were children. The earthquakes injured thousands; robbed the livelihoods of many more; and turned to rubble a huge number of homes, health posts and schools that faced the brunt of the quakes. They displaced millions of people from their homes, including thousands from their villages that had been wiped away by quake-induced landslides.
