On April 25th 2015 the earth in Nepal started to shake for the first time after 1934. Thousands of scared people were running through the streets, others were sitting in the middle of parks and squares, crying over the disaster. The first quake reached a 7.8 magnitude on richter scale, killing more than 9000 people and injuring more than 2300. Hundreds of thousands of people became homeless, destroying many villages across many different districts of the country.
A lot of buildings collapsed in the UNESCO world heritage site in Kathmandu valley.
Volunteers and international aid coming from all over the world have helped the Nepali people acquire doctors, armies and firemen. Refugee camps have been organized in the parks and safe places to help homeless and several tents were assigned for urgent medical aid.
Everybody helped each other like brothers, forgetting the social system of caste.
Some days after the last powerful quake, people from all of Nepal marched under the Dharahara Tower, where more than 180 people died, to commemorate all the victims of the earthquake and to unite one another giving strength to them all.
After one year from the disaster the situation is still critical due to lacks of funds and political problems as the petrol’s and gas blockade imposed by India.
The reconstruction of the country is getting slowly improving, but there is still a lot of work to do..
