Nepal Earthquake

According to the UN, 8 of the 28 million Nepalese, including 1.7 million children, were affected by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake, the deadliest in the country for over 80 years.

The international community quickly mobilized and hundreds of foreign aid workers are hard at work to search for survivors in the rubble treat the injured, install makeshift camps or sanitation.

Two survivors, a 15 year old and a young woman, were taken out of the rubble Thursday in which they were buried Saturday, April 25 in the capital Kathmandu, devastated by the quake.

These discoveries offer a rare rift in a very dark horizon for Nepal, coordinators help having warned that some heavily affected villages could not be reached after five days of walking.
