“Everyone thought this is the last day of their life. Not only one time, but hundreds of times the quake hit and the earth shook,” shares Kiran Karki, National Leader of Nepal in his official report of the event. Not only has Kiran and his team been tending to their families, but their neighbors, as well.
While our staff is safe, there are many thousands who were not. Seven days after the earthquake hit, nearly 6,000 people were found dead and about twice that number were injured. Various news sources estimate once all the rubble is cleared, lives lost will total much higher.
