Dalit families of Suryakot
In Suryakot. As of yesterday (2 May), no individual or organization had brought them any food, tents or medical supplies.
All these children lost their homes
Lentils distribution. The local coordinator, a trusted figure in the village, helped us with everything.
Thanks to the excellent local coordinator, the distribution went more smoothly than we had anticipated.
All 165 houses in the village were destroyed. 19 people were killed, mostly women (2 of them pregnant) and children.
Unfortunately, we could not provide tents as it would take time to arrange them. We had been told the village had no food and we could not wait longer.

Bharat Nepali lost his 8-year-old daughter in the quake. She was hit by a rock as she tried to flee from her falling house.
Shyam Bahadur Sarki lost his 8-year-old daughter in the quake. He retrieved her body four days later. His hands were bruised from digging through the rubble. He went all by himself to cremate her because everyone feared the body might cause disease.
