Categories: Asia | Catastrophes

Four months ago, Nepal was hit by a magnitude 7.8 earthquake. The catastrophe destroyed countless homes, hospitals and schools, and leveled entire neighborhoods to the ground. 8800 people died.

Now the country is in the monsoon season, and life is still very hard. Months of severe rain, floods and mudslides are expected in many areas. Outlying villages may be cut off from the outside world. Tens of thousands of families whose homes were destroyed by the earthquake will need temporary housing. About 2.8 million people need humanitarian assistance. Schools, roads and hospitals have been destroyed. Over a million people suffer from hunger.
