Six years ago, Amrita, aged 26, and her husband, Arjun, aged 33, left their village because their rice and corn harvest wasn’t enough to feed their family all year around. They wanted a better future for their daughters.
Their business in Bhaktapur cost them their life savings of $400.
This year, the family escaped with their lives, but lost their home and their livelihood in the quake.
On the first night, they slept together in the open without a tarpaulin.
They had no money or food, and didn’t eat for the first 24 hours. A week later, they were still wearing the same clothes they left in.
