25th of April 2015 – the day that changed everything
On 25th of April 2015, Nepal was struck by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake; this was followed by another 7.3 magnitude earthquake just over a fortnight later; after that there were more than 500 aftershocks up to magnitude 5.5. More than 9600 people were killed and millions were affected.
Unfortunately, a large part of the donations was blocked by the government, so that reconstruction progressed only very slowly.
The Nepalese economy has recovered day by day over the past seven years, but the pandemic has set it back by years.
