The earthquake in Nepal leaves a devastated country

Nepal is still asking for urgent help after the devastating earthquake of 7.8 decrees that has left more than 7000 deaths, 17000 injured people and hundreds of thousands of displaced people. 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.
