The video on this link from the Guardian newspaper is very moving: A young family caught in the Earthquake. The father now paralysed from the waist down, unable to work. One young child and a mother who has to get up at 5 am to go to the one one working water supply that serves 60 people. The quake has change their lives forever and Nepal’s government is maybe not wealthy enough to be able to help. Especially as they live in such a rural area.

As the mother says “These days my heart hurts when I wake up …. Instead of planning for the future we are only thinking about how to survive today.”
