The earthquake in Nepal leaves a devastated country

Before the national emergency situation declared by the government, the international community has thrown itself in helping the country, even though their efforts are not enough: thousands of disappeared people are still being looked for, many survivors sleep outside with heavy rain, hospitals are paralysed and many parts of the country are incommunicado.
