Rebuilding Nepal after the earthquake of 2015

“Three years have passed since the earthquakes of April and May 2015 rattled Nepal to its very core. The country is well into the recovery and reconstruction phase today; while significant progress has been made in expediting private house reconstruction, a great deal remains to be done: hundreds of thousands are still living in makeshift shelters, battling food and water shortages, and struggling to earn a decent living.”
