A 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck on 25 April, burying entire villages near the epicentre in Nepal’s mountainous Gorkha district and killing thousands as it shook down large parts of the capital Kathmandu.
The exact toll will never be known, but the enormous scale of the task facing the humanitarian community is clear. International aid and relief teams have descended on Nepal, while millions of people try to rebuild their shattered lives.
