A 7.8-magnitude earthquake, the worst for 81 years, struck Nepal on the morning of 25 April. Less than three weeks later on 12 May a second earthquake rocked the country.
Nepal is already one of the poorest countries in the world. Around 80% of the population live in rural areas and depend on subsistence farming for their livelihoods.
When disasters strike, it’s the poorest who feel the impact worst. With little to fall back on, when people’s health, homes or livelihoods are damaged, the road to recovery can be very long.
