It's been 5 days since the earthquake of 7.8 magnitude hit Nepal. I was finally able to have a long conversation with Anish, our coordinator. His home, which is located near Bhaktapur, was destroyed by the quake. He has moved into a small house nearby. They do not sleep in the house. No one is sleeping indoors these days. Aftershocks continue to rock the region. A large one had struck a few hours before we spoke. No one in our Nepal family was injured in the quake, but the mental and financial scars will live on.
