Nepal was hit by 7.8-magnitude earthquake on April 25 and a major aftershock of magnitude 7.3 on May 12. The results have been heartbreaking: over 8,500 people killed, more than 19,000 injured, nearly 500,000 houses destroyed, about 250,000 houses damaged and 6,000 schools destroyed which means nearly 1 million children can't return to school. In total, 8 million people are affected.
